Audio to text converter

Vovsoft Speech to Text Converter is an automatic speech conversion software to convert voice into text, supporting more than 50 languages. This audio to text utility can save you hours transcribing interviews, meetings, podcasts or any long audio files.

Video to text converter

In addition to audio files (MP3, M4A, FLAC, WAV, OGG), this application also supports video files such as MP4, WEBM, MKV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, WMV, FLV, TS. It will automatically extract speech from any video file and convert to text.

Record or load audio file

You can record your own voice using your microphone or load any audio file in order to convert to text. High quality audio improves results but you can also use narrow-band models for low-quality files.

Automatic speech to text transcription

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).

Convert voice recording to text on computer

Vovsoft Speech to Text Converter is such an AI powered software that can take your audio files, run them through your computer or cloud 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. This audio file to text converter program is ideal for both professionals and home use.

I have been using speech to text from VovSoft for a while. Yes it does require an IBM Watson account but it’s free. Once you have the account you need to look in your account interface for creating an API key it’s not trivial but it’s somewhat doable and definitely worth the effort looking for the instructions and following them. I don’t know of many other voice transcription system instead of free but of course there are probably some open source alternatives if you want to go that route. For me I like to use this because it has a very easy to use interface in the front end and you don’t even see the IBM connection once you have the API key properly configured – it just works.

Software works perfectly

IBM cloud is a different story but at the end it worked as well

I think that is a very good software. It allows to have a windows interface to run the ibm Watson speech to text. Because without this good software, I could not use the ibm speech to text because I don’t understand a interface api with of lines of command to enter to run the function. Thank you!

Works amazing well if you can get through the steps to link it to the IBM cloud service.

Creating an account took a bit of a challenge, but it’s the best speech2text I’ve ever tried.
