Any free audio to text software?

4 replies
I have several video interviews that I need to put into text/script format. Does anyone know of any good free audio to text programs? I already tried using my dragon naturally speaking and it did not pick up alot of the video. This project is for my 9 to 5 or I would just find some turkers on Amazon to do it for me!

    Good luck on finding anything free to do a decent job on what you want. I can't even get DNS to get my words down, and it certainly ain't free.

    It's not enough to want it... you have to want it enough.

    Hello,

    It may be best to convert extract the audio track from the video file, first. This can be done with VLC or other similar programs. Then, you can use a service similar to VoiceBase to transcribe the audio to text.

    Good quality audio will yield better transcription results.

    Good luck!
