Wow is all I can say about this app, TranscribeMe! is the neatest app I have used yet on my iPad even though it is meant to but used on an iPhone but hey it works! If you’re looking for a way to organize your thoughts, get your ideas recorded, or just don’t like typing this is for you! I have been using this for a couple weeks now and I LOVE it! I have to say I thought it was going to be complicated and hard to use but really it is straight forward and their video demos would even walk a kid through the process.
It is pretty simple:
- Download the iPhone transcription app for FREE
- Record your audio – even multiple people can be recorded!
- Upload for FREE and transcribe for a small fee
- You get an email when its finished with the .pdf document and have the option of going online to download a .doc or .html
It is that simple. You can pause and then keep recording, listen to yourself, or delete and start over so many options it is hard to figure out what to do next. There is a quick 2 minute video on the main page of TranscribeMe! that you’ll want to check out or their step by step guide on the blog.
Their philosophy states
TranscribeMe makes your life happier by making your audio recordings easier to create and use. By converting your audio recordings to text using crowd-sourced transcribers, you can easily search, share and market your otherwise useless audio. Simply click the big orange button on your smartphone app to record and receive an email with the transcript within 48 hours.
You can see my blog post on Internet Connection Anxiety how great this works, I didn’t edit the post at all just added a few things to the end and I didn’t script it before I started talking. It truly is a perfect translation with my slang talk and all! The turnaround for me was within the hour, how can you go wrong with that?!
These past couple of weeks I’ve used the app to organize my thoughts, think journal through voice. I’ve done a blog post and talked myself through a few things that I had spinning around in my brain that I couldn’t decide what to do next – like when I was in the hospital with my daughter and was trying to make some decisions but couldn’t think straight getting it out helped and then I could go back and listen. But the best part for me was actually transcribing something it was funny to see my exact words and actions on paper, like having a personal assistant record my moves for me!
It is simple enough that my six year old daughter could easily use the app, because let’s get real she is more technology friendly than I am. I have no complaints and look forward to using it in the future! I haven’t used the iPhone version of the app or the multi-speaker translation yet but purely because I usually am talking to myself ;).
This Momma gives the iPhone TranscribeMe! app a 5/5
