A long shot, but does anyone have any experience with transcribing audio? How is it done?
I tried slowing the audio down through VLC to be able to keep up with typing, but that makes it difficult to understand what’s being said. I’d be surprised if there wasn’t some easier way.
@jonn Yeah, could have been clearer on that. I can’t have another person do the transcribing (because reasons), but I’m fine with running it through Transcribe.
Thanks for your suggestion, by the way! :)
@jkreeftmeijer thanks for posting the answer, it's nice to know that there are ways. Looking forward to hear about your experiences with Transcribe..
@jkreeftmeijer also, I'm sorry for my suggestion to be a bit useless, since I actually was unable to find one reasonably swiftly!
@jonn Nah, reaching out to actual transcribers is certainly a good idea. Express Scribe was suggested, which looks like a good option if I’ll have to do this more often.
@jkreeftmeijer I would suggest you to contact any podcast with a transcribtion to get the contacts of transcribers and then ask them directly.
@janw Those look great indeed. I’m taking Amazon Transcribe for a spin (which looks like it’ll transcribe Dutch), but I’ll certainly try these out if that doesn’t work out. Thanks!
