"Speech to Text Converter" is an automatic speech conversion software to convert English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, German, and Mandarin (Chinese) voice into text. This utility can save you hours transcribing interviews, meetings, podcasts or any long audio files.
You can record your own voice using your microphone or load from any audio file (MP3, FLAC, WAV, OGG, WEBM) in order to convert to text. High quality audio improves results but you can also use narrow-band models for low-quality files.
If you have recorded some important lectures or speeches and want to convert them into text (transcription), you can either go the manual route of listening to the speech and typing the text or you can make use of the recent developments in the artificial intelligence (AI). "Vovsoft Speech to Text Converter" is such an AI powered software that can take your audio files, run them through AI servers and produce very accurate transcripts. It uses language profiles for recognition, and if you are not getting good speech-to-text conversion then switching to a different profile can give you better results.
The current version requires IBM Cloud Speech to Text API which can convert up to 500 minutes per month for free.
