“I am transcribing law school lectures with Sonix. After receiving my transcript, I make some edits because the software doesn't always catch all of the civil law terms. This service is amazing! I think its a great tool for exams. I've recommended Sonix to a number of friends.
“Sonix is miraculous. I'm an anthropologist who's done thousands of interviews (ethnographies) and your tech is, well, 'miraculous.' That's the word that keeps coming to my mind: 'miraculous.'”

Once you have your transcript you can use Sonix’s tagging feature which allows you to tag key data points so they’re assimilated and aggregated. Deriving insights is a breeze now that your data is easily retrieved by a few clicks.
