Popup Podcasting's independent review 🔥

Manual methods of transcribing audio and video files have traditionally been a costly and time-consuming act. And the same processes haven’t changed for more than 50 years. Against that backdrop, speech recognition technology has made more advances in the last 18 months than it has in the last decade.

Some of the largest tech companies on the planet are allocating huge dollars and resources into automated speech recognition (ASR). Behemoths like Google, Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft are all vying for leadership in this space. And with machines approaching human parity for voice recognition, the intensity has gotten even hotter.

Sonix leverages the technology from several of these major players and combines it with its own proprietary algorithms and machine intelligence. An independent review of automated transcription services was done recently:

We are proud to say that Sonix ranked the highest among automated services overall and in terms of accuracy.

Other quotes from the review

The site uses an exceptionally clean design, and to create an account is free.

Due to the nature of Cloud-based processing, judging how fast or slow processing might be is impossible, but is relatively fast in our experience. Typically it takes between 10% and 20% of the time to transcribe as the recording lasts. Therefore completing a 10-minute recording usually takes under 2 minutes.

Sonix is certainly better when the quality of the recording and the clarity of the speaker is high.

On the plus side of this equation, it’s fast, and it’s a remarkably easy system to use, although we’d recommend running a few example recordings through this solution before committing to a subscription.
