Hey looks like a really cool product and beautiful UI. How do you handle the transcription? Are you using 3rd party libraries or is the AI completely proprietary? Thanks

@adam_webber Thank you. A combination. For example we built our own auto-punctuation AI for certain languages.

I've been using Rev and Temi for a long time, so I'm intrigued and going to give this a go.

Hi everyone. A few years ago I had a video edit where I needed to get some long (and tedious) interviews transcribed. I couldn't believe transcription was still being done by humans...slowly and expensively. So I wondered what if I apply speech rec (+ a few other AIs) to the problem and hacked together a website: it worked pretty darn well. Simon Says was born. And since inception, it has grown in number of customers and number of features. We mainly focus on video pros and we have deep integration into post production workflows to make it more efficient. Thanks for trying us out. I'd love to hear any and all feedback.

I'm going to try something else

Pros:

- Affordable option to manual translation

Cons:

- Unable to transcribe technical topics - Buggy UI - Impossible to unsubscribe from billing plan

@ty_shaikh Sorry you had this experience - you messaged us before that there was a bug to unsubscribe which we addressed and *immediately* unsubscribed you (so I would dispute that it is "impossible"). We also wrote how to unsubscribe in our FAQ here: https://help.simonsays.ai/en/art... Technical topics - the nature of this AI is it is trained on general speech and over time will become more proficient on technical terms used in particular domains. The accuracy today will be better than yesterday and eventually it will approach perfection.
