Increase AI accuracy with Custom Dictionaries

Custom Dictionary enables you to define the context of a conversation in advance and input those difficult terms into the dictionary, so that when they do come up, they are transcribed without error.

  • Names
  • Accents
  • Abbreviations
  • Acronyms
  • Trademarks / copyrights
  • Specialist or industry-specific language
  • Alternate word forms

Traditionally, transcription providers would have to train each specific model for a customer to include special words. However, setting up a new model has typically been very time-consuming, usually requiring an overnight rebuild. Custom Dictionary streamlines the entire process by putting you in control and allowing you to add new words in plain text to “teach” the model, regardless of use case or language context.
