Sometimes I don't need 100% accuracy. I just need to have a long audio file transcribed cheaply and fast so I could review what's in it.
- If you need timestamps or an actual .srt subtitle file, you can upload the video w/audio and let Youtube automatically transcribe it (you can upload an unlisted/private video so it's not findable). After a few minutes you can download the entire subtitle file with the text in it. Free and fast with decent accuracy!
- Jamie Sutherland made this productSonix might work for you. It's completely automated and can return a transcript in less time than the length of the recording (eg. 30 minute file will take less than 30 minutes). Because it's completely automated, it is not 100% perfect but can get pretty close with a clear, crisp audio file. Price = $8 per hour of transcription Upload a file to Sonix and you will receive an email notifying you that your transcription is finished. The email will include a link to the transcription. The transcript includes timestamps, highlighting, and editing functionality built right into the transcript. You can then share it or export to many formats as you wish.
