What customers say about Sonix's automated transcription 💘

4.98 rating from 155 reviews
I really like it. Easy to use, very accurate, and easy to correct when it is not. A truly super program, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Sonix is by far the best transcription tool I have ever used.
The accuracy, that's what I like the most.
Very cool and fascinating too. Ahh the power of algorithms. I can tell you that I love the overall UI experience because it's pretty, dumbed down, and very easy for me to use. I've done a lot of radio and this service would be invaluable for that kind of work.
Great website. Love the drag & drop option. Very accurate too!
I am impressed by the almost perfect accuracy of the conversion and the speed by which the transcription was completed. Your web display is also impressive with clear and easy-to-use links.
