Can I have a sample?

Yes! Email your RSS feed url to  OR go to your show’s page on our website, and click “View Sample”:

How does this work?

You publish your episode like usual, then we’ll automatically detect the new episode.

Within about 15 minutes of episode release, we’ll email you your episode transcript, link to edit, and embed code with nothing required on your part.

Most authors label speakers, make minor edits, then put our embeddable transcript player on the new episode page on their site.

Then their fans can read & search through the transcripts, and their page automatically gets an SEO boost since search engines can now read all of the episode’s content!

How accurate is it?

For most podcasts, 90-95% of words will be correct. For high quality audio in which speakers don’t talk over each other, you can expect 95%+ accuracy.

But it’s always best to check the accuracy yourself. Luckily, you can get a sample of your transcript by following the instructions from the top of this page.

Can I get the transcripts before I publish my episodes?

Yes – you can manually upload any audio or video file at any time if you’d like to receive transcripts before you publish your episodes. Here’s how.

Can your team polish the transcripts for me?

Yes – our team (humans) can polish the transcript to 100% accuracy for you for $1 per minute of audio with a 48 hour turnaround time.

Can you transcribe my old episodes?

Yes. We can provide very reasonable rates for bulk transcription jobs.

Can I label speakers and edit my transcripts?

Yes, using our web editor. Here’s how to do so.

What format do I receive my transcript?

You can view and play through all of your transcripts on our web transcript player at any time.  We can email you a copy of the transcript to place on your website and/or provide the transcript in SRT format to upload to Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc.

Signing up simply means that we will transcribe every new episode of yours moving forward. You are able to access, embed, and edit your transcripts right away.

Can I automate any part of this?

Yes – our WordPress plugin can make a new post a few minutes after you publish an episode on your podcast host. The post will have your podcast’s description and transcript. Here’s how.

Why can I not upload my file to be transcribed?

While our system lets you upload files to be transcribed, it can only transcribe files that are 500 mb or smaller. Video files may not be smaller than 500 mb. Instead, try extracting the audio from your video file and uploading the mp3 instead. VLC is one popular video player that lets you do this. Many sites online let you do this too.
