So you have a media file and you want to have it in text? Not sure where to start? Well we've got you covered!

๐Ÿ”ผ Step 1: Upload your file

  • Get started by clicking Create to upload your file. You can upload a URL or a media file - find our accepted file formats here.

  • Click on Transcript

  • Upload your file using the options on the left side.

  • Select the audio language

  • Select the service you require (Automatic or Human-made)

  • Review your selection and click Create to submit your file! ๐ŸŽ‰

โœ๏ธ Step 2: Use the Transcript Editor

Now the file has been processed, click the file name on your dashboard to open the Transcript Editor.

  • When using the Automatic Service, we strongly recommend reviewing and correcting the file before downloading it.

  • Use the Editor to quickly correct any errors or mishears, as well as add any words.

  • Found multiple, repeating mistakes? Use the Find feature to quickly correct them in one-go!

  • Add or correct speaker names to the different sections of audio.

  • You can also add comments and highlight areas of the transcript you find interesting.

  • Words in blue follow what's being played as it's spoken. Words in red are highlighted by the AI as areas it was not completely confident in the result. This helps identify areas to pay close attention to in the proofreading process.

  • If you'd rather we proofread this for you, you might wish to use the Human-made service.

Do you want to collaborate on your transcript with other users?

No problem! You can do this by adding members to your Workspace or by sharing the file via editable link.
