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.
These are high-level, technical, mining-related audio interviews, so the transcriber regularly getting the correct spelling on a lot of these obscure, foreign town names and project names is quite impressive – you can tell the transcriber took the time to look up the proper words through Google or on the mining company’s website.
The fast turnaround time and low price is excellent. Now thanks to Speechpad, I’m able to turn my podcast interviews and other audio quickly into Q&A articles for our newspaper, so our subscribers have the choice to listen to the podcast or read a transcript of it. And I can fill the pages of the newspaper at a much lower cost than commissioning a freelance article, for example – so important when as media we really have to watch every penny.
Also, the interface on your website and the various options to download transcripts and review audio is very helpful and easy to use.
So, I’m a 100% satisfied customer!
We’ve been testing various transcription services… and SpeechPad turned out to be a clear winner in terms of accuracy and speed!
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.
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.
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.
We love working with Speechpad! The final output is great and the turnaround time is incredible. You all are a great partner for us!
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.
Speechpad came highly recommended by our SEO agency to assist us in
transcribing video content for our multichannel inventory management
company. We couldn’t agree more! We have been amazed at the
accuracy of the video transcriptions with technical barcoding and
stock control terms, coupled with the quick turnaround and affordable
prices. We highly recommend their services, and we are certain they
will not disappoint.
Speechpad is the one service I simply could not operate without. They always beat the deadline and never disappoint.
We have been using Speechpad since 2016 and it has been a strong part of our content strategy to enhance video content. The turnaround time is quick, the quality is high and the fees are cost-efficient. Highly recommended and the best transcription service we’ve ever used.
We’re always extremely impressed with the fast turn around and accuracy that we get with your transcription services. Your team is friendly, willing to accommodate our needs, and dependable. These are traits that are often difficult to find in any partnership, and I’m glad we’ve had the opportunity to grow our relationship with you!
Easy to use UI, super quick response time if issues arise, fast turnaround, and high accuracy (even when transcribing unusual brand/product names).
I have gone through dozens of other transcription services ranging from individuals to companies, and NO SERVICE has ever matched the quality and consistency I receive with Speechpad. I’ve had thousands of minutes transcribed by them now for my training products, and the work is always reliable and outstanding.
I love you Speechpad! You’re hands down the fastest, lowest priced, and most accurate transcription service around. You free me up to do what I do best and support women around the world to create more prosperity.
Thanks so much!
Speechpad is the fastest and most accurate transcription service we’ve ever used. They know how to transcribe industry jargon and correctly reference websites, and are a life saver in a pinch. I can’t imagine using any other company or service for transcription!
There are few products/services that are so simple to use and quick to provide the expected outcome.
While other transcription services exist, I chose Speechpad based on price and simplicity. I continue to be pleased with the ease of submission, transcription options, turnaround time and transcription quality.
Kudos on this service. Keep it up.
Speechpad lets us scale transcription needs on hundreds of videos at once. Transcription has hugely increased our viewership. Users now watch more than 50,000 minutes of our videos each month and these views precede 20% of our sales.
