"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 audio to text 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 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 IBM 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. This program is ideal for both professionals and home use.
The current version requires IBM Cloud Speech to Text API which can convert up to 500 minutes per month for free.

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.
