What is automated transcription? 🔥

The value of automated transcription services

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.

One of the best values of automatic transcription software is that it offers many different benefits that starts with transcribing audio.

For instance, you can take an English video, transcribe it, then translate that into another language. Sonix can do this automatically and can support up to 39 languages. As a result, you to access new markets and expand your reach to other countries.

Automatic transcription software also allows you to put subtitles to your videos easily and automatically. This is valuable for making your content accessible to people with hearing disabilities.

Auto transcription services can also allow you to repurpose your content. For example, you can use the transcript of an existing video to create blog articles, webinars, and social media posts. That allows you to extend the life of your marketing assets and increase the mileage of your marketing spend.

Auto transcribing software can even improve your SEO. You can upload a transcript alongside a video or audio file so search engine bots can “read” the content. This will increase the ranking of that content and make it easier to find.

Automatic transcription software is also invaluable as an internal tool. You can use it to transcribe the dozens of meetings or sales calls that most businesses get in a single day. That will allow you to review them and extract insights at your convenience.

Transcripts can also help prevent miscommunication by stating the exact words in an online meeting. This benefit is especially valuable if some speakers are from various countries with different accents.

Finally, opting for an auto transcript service instead of hiring a professional has its perks. Automated tools like Sonix can produce transcripts that are nearly as accurate as a human but at a faster turnaround time. Transcriptions for a moderate-length video can take as little as 10 minutes.

Even the best transcriptionist, by contrast, will take hours to do it. At most, you just need to do minor editing to get it up to quality.

Then there’s also the cost. Human-run transcription services typically charge high hourly fees. Sonix, in contrast, only charges a fraction of that price.

The accuracy of automated transcription software

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.

Indeed, accuracy is one of the top metrics for identifying the best automatic transcription software.

Indeed, many free transcription tools suffer from low-quality results. At most, you’d need to spend added time and effort to tweak these transcripts to bring them up to acceptable accuracy because even a mistranslated or misheard word can be disastrous. In a court case, for example, a wrong transcription of a testimony can get a person wrongfully convicted or freed. In scientific applications, it can lead to erroneous conclusions.

But even in the context of business, even slightly inaccurate transcriptions will reflect poorly on your business. At worst, a mistranslation to another language might offend some of your clients.

Customer reviews of Sonix's automated transcription 💘

4.98 rating from 203 reviews
Very accurate transcription, ease of use and customer service. Price was also very reasonable.
Impressed at how seamless Sonix makes editing transcripts. This is so much easier and more enjoyable than manually writing an entire transcript myself.
I’m blown away by how accurate it was.
Really fast to transcribe our audio files with high accuracy, we just had to correct some small words. I like the layout of the website, how pleasing to the eye and easy it is to edit your files, nothing was complicated and I wasn't ever 'stuck' on something and didn't know where to click etc, it was my first time ever using something like this and it was a breeze!

Online Transcription Services and Benefits You’re Not Taking Advantage Of 📈

Still on the fence about getting our all-in-one transcription platform?

Here are some additional benefits you might not know about.

We already mentioned above how the best online transcription service can save you plenty of money due to lower costs and faster processing time. But most platforms also have a transparent and fair payment system.

That’s because tools like Sonix adopt a pay-as-you-use scheme. We charge a low fee ($10 per video hour compared to the industry standard of $100 per hour for professionals) only when you transcribe. There’s no monthly fee or subscription to pay.

The fast turnaround time and fair pricing make Sonix a great tool for companies with a bulk of video content. It ensures that your transcriptions can catch up with the volume of video you produce while paying a relatively affordable fee for the service.

Indeed, platforms like Sonix give you the power and flexibility of a low-cost, on-demand transcription service at your fingertips.
