Audio to Text

Speechpad specializes in converting audio to text to create a high value document that can be read, searched and archived.

We can convert audio to text in different ways, depending on your particular needs. We offer a verbatim transcription, a transcription that captures every uhhm, ah, false start or other utterance of the speakers. Insurance companies or law firms often require this type of audio to text transcription for a specific legal purpose. At Speechpad, we have delivered over a thousand hours of high quality verbatim transcripts. Our transcription samples page has examples.

If you want a readable transcription, i.e. a transcription where the text is edited while still capturing every material intent of the original audio, we can provide that as well. Earnings calls, meetings, videos, or podcasts are typical use cases. We have a plethora of examples in our samples section!

Some customers require a book-ready transcription. We do these through our sister site, The Admin Source. These transcripts are heavily edited with the intention of going straight to the final, customer-ready product. Although somewhat rare, a transcription might even contain words that were not in the original audio file if it makes the intent more clear or the final transcript more readable.

In addition to file upload via the website, you can submit audio through a regular phone or a smart phone application. We offer a phone recording service to capture phone calls, conference calls, or simply leave notes for yourself. Our smart phone applications allow you to record, manage, and share audio as well.

More audio to text information

When referencing to an audio file recorded after a meeting, broadcast, phone call or interview, it can be hard to find specific information. A simple audio to text transcription can allow you easy access to this information through high value, searchable documents. Speechpad offers audio to text transcriptions for your recordings so that you can read, organize, archive and search this information for later use.

You just finished a long meeting with a potential client during which you recorded the conversation to reference later. You begin working on designs for the client, but you can’t remember the specific details you discussed during the meeting. Instead of going back and listening through the hour or two of audio for the sentence during which you discussed the details, you decide to have the audio transcribed to text through a transcription service. The transcription service provides you with a readable document that allows you to easily search for the missing details. Instead of searching through the audio file or exchanging countless emails trying to remember what the client wanted during the meeting, you complete the project for the client accurately, and they are happy with your work.

Transcribing audio to text is more than just about a quick reference for a client’s project. It is about saving you time and money that could be better spent on productivity than wasting time listening to audio recordings or trying to transcribe the document yourself.
