What our customers have to say...

I use Speechpad because it’s the most accurate, speedy and reliable transcription service I’ve ever used.

Andrew Warner, Founder

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

I’ve used Speechpad for my podcast narration for years now. Their speed and accuracy make the service useful and reasonably priced. I tried using several different AI services but the amount of editing required made it more cost-effective to use a human transcriptionist, particularly when the speakers did not have American accents. Thanks, Speechpad for making my job easier!

Joanna Penn, Podcaster and Author
The Creative Penn

We tried Rev, we tried rolling our own solution through Mechanical Turk, we tried hiring directly – nothing and no one could match the value and accuracy of Speechpad.

Andy Rostad, Executive Producer
Media Beyond

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

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!

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.

“Speechpad has been a good partner in our workflow, delivering consistently high quality and reliable services that enhance the overall quality and accessibility of our videos across our platform and many others that we service.”
