Hi,

Good day to all. I'm just new here and badly need help. Does anybody here knows any software or service where I can transcribe my audio files into text? I have tons of it in different formats and I have no time listening to all of it and transcribe it into words. I'm willing to spend a few bucks for it but better if it will be free.

Thanks,
Allan

You may want to look into Dragon Naturally Speaking (Pro version).

Just want to share this as I have the same problem a week ago and also ask help in some forums. And these all wrapped up to my conclusion.

Using online speech to text services you can convert audio files to text document easily and its more reliable than downloaded software.

Dragon is the most commonly used but can't be taken for professional purposes since you still have to train it.

You may also try a service like http://www.speechtotextservice.com/ or you can hire in elance, freelance, odesk, etc.

But on thing is for sure. As of the present technology in transcription, still nothing is free, unless you still do the work. Hope this adds up FYI.

Thanks for your all your suggestions. Will definitely try those out as I'm a bit desperate and time pressured. Hope there still some other suggestions to come. Will keep you posted.

Good day and thanks a lot guys. Just want to keep you all posted that I tried all your tips and I settled at https://speechtotextservice.com. Got my audio files transcribed well. It was really a time saver and stress reliever. I'm still using it up to now. Also tried Dragon but it still needs to be trained which will still consume my time and is a bit expensive IMO. Anyway, much appreciated all your help. Thanks for this forum. Keep up the good tips! :D

Hi Guys,

Good day to all of you and glad to seeing you all once again. I just want to inform and share to all of you that I've recently found a new and innovative Audio and Video transcription service which also provides subtitling and captioning service. They can also do transcription of different languages. The price is cheaper by half the price with what I was using previously as I've mentioned above and the turnaround time is much faster!

Check them out guys at http://owltranscription.com/. They've just recently launched and their clients are increasing enormously and giving positive feedbacks. If you're still in need of transcription, I highly recommend you try this.

Hope this helps once more. ;)

I hope you could continuously give us these tips once you found newer and better service like this. "You really Rock!" Again thank you very much for all of these as well as to this forum site.
