What is automated transcription?
The value of automated transcription
Automated transcription is the ability to accurately convert speech into text. Transforming audio or video to text opens up a whole new world of opportunities for data mining and information. The text that is created can easily be analyzed or fed into other applications for further insight. Accuracy is of utmost importance.
Sonix proprietary algorithms leverage the latest in AI to drive the most accurate automated transcript on the market. Sonix is fast, easy, and accurate. All the things you need in the world’s most revered automated transcription platform.
The Accuracy of automated transcription
Sonix has been independently reviewed as the most accurate automated transcription service. Word-error-rate is the typical metric to assess accuracy but features like the Sonix Custom Dictionary enable customers to create custom vocabularies and further increase accuracy.
We are frequently testing across all languages to get consistently low WER across all media types. Our testing demonstrates the lowest WER when compared to some of the largest players on the market.
Customer reviews of Sonix's automated transcription
I love Sonix. It's accurate, intuitive, friendly and simple to use for the technically inept like me! I typically use it for English but we used it this time in French and it was great too.
Your app is amazing. Seriously, I'm blown away by the technology. The speed, accuracy, and the fact that you can play the audio and that it highlights the transcript in sync.
The level of accuracy and your UI is quite amazing. It allowed me to try the product without having to learn anything new, I was so happy about it I sent the results to a couple of friends because I knew at the moment that this could change the way I work.
Surprisingly accurate transcription across a number of European accents (Yorkshire, Scottish, Oxford, Italian!)
