Transcriptionist quickly and privately converts speech from audio recordings (and some videos) into text. Writing up notes for a meeting? Creating transcripts or subtitles for a podcast? Looking for just the right clip to cut out of a long recording? Or quotes for a news article? Need to remember what happened on game night? Or just want to remind yourself of what was said, without listening to the entire recording?
Transcriptionist can help — in nearly 100 languages — on Mac, iPad or iPhone.
Import the audio into the app, tap the transcribe button, and it will start to fill in the text that was spoken. Each piece is shown with a timestamp, and you can jump straight there in the recording to listen back to the original audio — at up to 2× speed.
If each speaker was recorded with their own microphone, Transcriptionist will track who said what, when — and you can solo individual voices to pick out what someone said, even if another person talked over them.
Copy and paste quotes into an article you’re writing, or export the entire transcript in a range of formats, including PDF, HTML (web page), Markdown (blog post), SRT and VTT (subtitles), as well as formats suitable for importing into other apps — you can even create your own custom text formats with the built-in easy-to-use editor.
If you edit podcasts with our popular Ferrite Recording Studio, you can send your finished Ferrite projects direct to Transcriptionist — along with chapter markers — and each track will be kept separate so you can identify who’s speaking.
Transcription takes place on your device, not on our servers, so no audio or text is sent to us, and subscribers can make as many transcripts as they like — we don’t charge per-minute or per-transcript.
