How It Works
Transcribe is a transcription and dictation tool that helps you transcribe audio in a single screen without having to constantly switch between a media-player and a text editor. Our customers use Transcribe in the following ways:
To transcribe an audio by typing (the traditional way):
- Click on "Choose audio/video" to select the recording that you wish to transcribe. We support the following audio file formats: mp3/mp4/m4a/amr/wma/aac/wav/ogg/webm and the following video file formats: mp4/ogg/webm.
- An audio player will open up. You can control the playback of the audio file using these handy shortcuts (Mac users: switch F1-F11 keys to function as standard function keys):
- Esc: pause/resume
- F1: slow down
- F2: speed up
- F3: rewind 2 seconds
- F4: forward 2 seconds
- F6: insert timestamp
Transcribing using Dictation:
Transcribe has a dictation feature that converts voice spoken directly into your microphone into text using voice recognition. So, you can simply listen to the audio in a headphone and repeat what you hear in your own voice. Transcribe's fast & highly accurate dictation engine will convert your voice to text. We typically find this method to be 2-3x faster than typing.
Please read this guide to learn how to convert your speech to text using dictation.
Transcribing using a Foot Pedal:
Using a foot pedal allows you to free up your hands to focus on typing while using your feet to control audio playback. Transcribe supports the following foot pedals
- Infinity USB Foot Pedal
