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.
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?

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?

What is my login?
New subscribers don’t have log-ins by default because many of our clients like to crowdsource editing. But if you would like to make your transcripts private, or restrict editing to only a certain few, we can then make a login for you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
