Are you shopping for an automated voice to text app?
You need tremendous amount of luck, to get a transcript that is not a jumble of mixed up words. Despite millions of linguists and tech wizards, working on making voice recognition software better and more user friendly, it still doesn’t match up to the capabilities of a human transcriber.
There are thousands of exasperated users who’ve lost their peace of mind and dollars. What makes working with an automatic voice recognition app such a horrific experience?
Are, there more than one person in your recording?
You can look forward to a transcript that has nothing to do with the content of your recording. A voice to text needs to be trained patiently to pick up words and accents. If there are multiple speakers in your recording, and they are all not willing to spend hours on end training your app, you can forget about a perfect transcript.
ASRs that use crowdsourcing technology are marginally more successful than ASRs that are machine based.
There are upsides too…
Using an ASR has its advantages too. Real time status updates, API queuing and not waiting for the transcript are all great plusses. Most people find working with applications much less tiresome than dealing with real human beings. It is more inexpensive, quick and accessible, anytime. Several transcription service providers have upped the ante and offer online transcription platforms.
The best of both worlds!
