audio and video transcription

Discover the Authôt benefits

Today, human work and speech recognition technology used alone cannot give a reliable result for audio/video transcription. But by combining them: automatic and manual offer a 100% reliable and quality transcript. That’s what Authôt’s solution does!

We provide you an automatic audio/video transcription service with up to 95% reliability (depending on the recording conditions parasitic noises, reverberations and speaker’s speech). The remaining percentage can be completed manually; a native proofreader listens to the file and modifies words misunderstood by the system. He also corrects spelling errors and meets clients’specific instructions such as: adding capital letters, removing familiar expressions, etc.

What is the result?

The combination of the automatic and the manual optimizes the audio/video transcription method to the maximum. In this way, Authôt saves you time and money with the automatic system and offers you a quality final work, thanks to manual proofreading.
These advantages are valued by many of our clients, from Audiovisual Productions to Universities, Medias and Radios (watch our Case Studies).

Tips for a successful audio/video transcription

video transcription proofreading

If your file is recorded with a good sound quality (see our FAQ), you can choose the automatic transcription service only and edit it yourself using our interactive online editor.

However, if you do not have the time or staff to do so, you can call on our team of proofreaders by choosing the proofreading service. Your audio transcript will be ready in no time!

On the other hand, if you have a poor quality audio file, (like parasitic noise or reverberations), we advise you to use the proofreading service directly.
