Common Automatic Transcription Questions

What is automatic transcription?

Automatic transcription is a technology that uses artificial intelligence to transcribe audio or video content into text format without the need for human intervention. With automatic transcription, users can obtain a transcript of their audio or video files quickly and easily, making it an efficient and cost-effective alternative to manual transcription.

How do automatic transcription services work?

Automatic transcription services use machine learning algorithms to analyze the audio or video file and convert it into text. The technology is designed to recognize patterns in speech, identify individual words, and accurately transcribe them into written text. The accuracy of automatic transcription can vary depending on the quality of the audio, background noise, and the speaker's accent. Simon Says AI advance speech recognition technology achieves one of the highest accuracy in the market.

How long does it take to transcribe 1 hour of audio?

The time it takes to transcribe 1 hour of audio varies depending on the length and complexity of the audio file, the quality of the recording, and the service provider. However, as a general rule, it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours to transcribe 1 hour of audio manually. With Simon Says, the process can be completed 2-3 times faster than the audio length, depending on the audio quality, noise and complexity.

How much does your transcription service cost?

Our plans start at $0.25 per minute with the pay-as-you-go option and go down to $0.09 per minute on the Pro+ plan.

Is automatic transcription better than human transcription?

While automatic transcription offers a fast and cost-effective solution for transcribing audio and video content, it may not always be as accurate as human transcription. Human transcriptionists can better understand nuances in speech, pick up on context and tone, and correct errors that automatic transcription may miss. Our technology allows us to achieve 95+% accuracy for transcribing audio and video into text, drastically reducing the time it takes to transcribe.

Can I transcribe using my phone?

Yes, you can transcribe using your phone. Simon Says AI offers a mobile app that enables users to record and transcribe audio files on their smartphones. The app uses artificial intelligence to transcribe audio files in real time, making it an efficient and convenient option for users who need to transcribe on the go.

How many languages do you support?

We support over 100 languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, Japanese, and more. You can choose the language you need for your transcription, and we will automatically transcribe the audio or video file into the selected language.

Do you transcribe files with multiple speakers?

Yes, Simon Says AI can transcribe files with multiple speakers. The service uses machine learning algorithms to differentiate between speakers and accurately transcribe their speech. The software can detect when a new speaker begins talking and assign a unique identifier to each speaker to ensure the transcript is accurate and easy to follow.

Do you add timestamps?

Yes, Simon Says AI can add timestamps to the transcript. Timestamps can be added at regular intervals, such as every minute or every five minutes, or customized to the user's specific needs. Timestamps make it easier to navigate through the transcript and locate specific parts of the audio or video content quickly.

How do you keep my files secure?

Simon Says AI takes security and privacy seriously and uses industry-standard security measures to ensure the safety of customer files. The service uses encryption to protect customer data, and all files are stored on secure servers. Only authorized personnel have access to customer files, and all employees undergo rigorous security training to ensure the confidentiality of customer information.
