Automatically Transcribing Audio Files

Recommended Posts

I have about 200 hours of audio files that I want to transcribe into text files. Other than sitting for about 2 months listening to them and typing them very badly or getting somebody to do it for me I'm trying to find a program, app. some piece of technical wizardry or a miracle that will enable me to upload an audio file and have it re-purposed as a text file.

I thought I'd cracked it with a speech recognition add-on in Google Docs (yes I know I'm a cheapskate) but this no longer seems to exist. Does anybody have any ideas as to how I can find this program or app or miracle?  I've tried every sort of search I can manage but have only been able to come up with solutions that are now unavailable, out dated or just plain wrong.

I know there will still be a lot of correcting to do with audio to text but it's better than transcribing the whole 200 hours manually.

I use Dragon Speaking Naturally 13 Premium.

That being said, most computers these days have some sort of dictation application that will probably work for your purposes... Open the audio file, the text and dictation, and let the computer talk to itself.  You'll need to go back through and edit with most sofware... That's why I like Dragon, it "learns".

Also, you can usually find fairly affordable editors for this sort of thing on whatever outsourcing website you like.
