Audio Files Transcription
« on: July 25, 2013, 01:59:42 am »
Hi,

Good day to all. I'm just new here and badly need help. Does anybody here knows any software or service where I can transcribe my audio files into text?  I have tons of it in different formats and I have no time listening to all of it and transcribe it into words. I'm willing to spend a few bucks for it but better if it will be free.

Thanks,
Allan

The thread I linked to explains a few things, both Transcription, Closed Captioning and podcast show notes. They are 3 different but similar items. Thing to keep in mind is that Transcription is a half baked attempt at closed captioning and for the most part not worth the time. Closed Captioning is the way to go particularly if you need to meet government regulations. Podcast show notes is more about SEO and the show notes will never be a word for word match to the actual words spoken in the media.
