So, how does it work?

Transcribe offers an audio player that's tightly integrated with a text editor on the same screen.

So, no more switching back and forth between the audio player and the editor.

Text editor with integrated audio player

Control playback with handy keyboard shortcuts

You can slow down, pause or rewind audio anytime using single-keypress keyboard shortcuts.

Want to insert the current timestamp? That's just another shortcut away.


Convert your voice to text via fast & accurate dictation

Listening to the audio and speaking out what you hear is way faster than typing.

Our online dictation engine supports all major European and Asian languages.
