What our customers have to say...

Speechpad has been a breeze to work with and I’m really happy we were able to find them during our search for a transcription partner. The quality of the work and customer service whenever an issue arises has been exceptional.

Seth Kravitz, CEO of PHLEARN

Tried word recognition software first. Took more work than listening to the audio and transcribing it myself. Had tons of mistakes. Switched to Speechpad and have never looked back. They generate usable transcripts that allow me to work much more efficiently.

As a leader in the NLP space, RSVT finds Speechpad’s platform a great fit for our data acquisition needs.  Our deployed speech recognition app is constantly learning thanks to a transcription client we were able to build against Speechpad’s APIs.  The verbatim option is understood by their crowd and the turnaround time is never an issue. Additionally, Speechpad works with us to ensure robustness (e.g. update instructions, API updates etc) on an ongoing basis.

I cannot speak highly enough about the people who transcribe files at Speechpad. They, along with this service, have saved me countless hours putting words to audio or video–words from lectures and meetings I’ve recorded or videos and audios I’ve obtained from the web. In addition, this company has wonderful customer service and the price is very reasonable. A very high quality organization and a high quality product received every single time!

Thank you Speechpad!

As soon as I got serious about SEO, and social marketing I knew I needed both captions to capture interest on social, and transcriptions to catch Google’s eye. I looked at a few options and tried Speechpad once, it was such a high-quality transcription (they removed a lot of ‘ums’ and ‘ahs’ that automatic software would’ve left). And the whole process was just easy, I quickly built them into our process and have not looked back.

I would be absolutely LOST without Speechpad’s transcription services. They make my job as an independent writer so much easier. Sometimes I have to work with poor quality or very large audio files. Each time this happens, they reach out, exceed my expectations, and they CARE. All professional services should be delivered with the same level of proficiency and compassion.

Kelly Barner Owner, Managing Director
Buyers Meeting Point, LLC

Speechpad is an indispensable service that augments the information I am given on new technology solutions and helps me turn the recordings of briefings by the companies concerned into high quality reviews of the technology. Without it I would waste hours of my time.

Martin Gandar, Associate Senior Analyst

We love working with Speechpad! The final output is great and the turnaround time is incredible. You all are a great partner for us!

Lauren Dragona-Breen, Head of Production
Coca-Cola Studios

In more than 20 years of research and writing, I’ve haven’t come across any professional service — not one — that delivered better, more reliable value per dollar, nor better customer service, than Speechpad. Since the first time I tried it, I haven’t used any other transcription service, and I don’t plan to.

Standard Captions Case Study Baeble Music


In order to appeal to a broader audience and make their content more discoverable to search engines, Baeble Music wanted to provide accurate and timely captions for intimate interviews with up-and-coming artists and bands. The captions would be accessible from videos on their YouTube channel and their website.


Baeble decided to outsource the captioning so that employees could stay focused on what they do best. The company needed a mature provider that could consistently produce high quality captions in WebVTT format, with minimal overhead and reliable turnaround time. After evaluating multiple captioning service providers, they chose Speechpad, mainly due to a recommendation from another one of our clients.


Speechpad’s solution makes it easy to upload videos and order captions. With 98% or better accuracy and consistently fast turnaround times, Baeble never has to worry about getting timely and accurate captions.
