What to consider when choosing speech-to-text software

Speech-to-text software is supposed to save you a lot of time when it comes to transcription. Choose software that’s fast but reliable. Ideally, it should only take a few minutes to receive automatic transcripts, but this does depend on the length of your recording. Your speech-to-text converter should be accurate leaving you with little to edit or fix. It’s best to go for speech recognition software that can handle multiple speakers and include timestamps to make it easier to differentiate speakers. 

To save you space and time, choose a speech-to-text converter that also offers audio recording. It’s best if you can record in high-quality audio resolution as this leads to more accurate voice transcription. We recommend uncompressed WAV files for clear audio. You’ll want to be able to download text (TXT) transcripts as these are best for turning audio into written content. Your speech-to-text transcriber should be easy to use and accessible no matter what device you’re using.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert speech to text?

While you can manually type out your speech to text, you can save plenty of time and work using an online speech-to-text converter. Generally, these use artificial intelligence or speech recognition software to identify words and convert them into written text. 

Check out how to automatically transcribe text with Riverside. It’s super simple! Record your audio, and straight after, we’ll automatically turn your speech into text with the tap of a button.

Can I convert speech to text online for free?

Yes. While there are many free speech-to-text options available online, not all of these are reliable. Google Doc’s voice typing feature is a well-known option to turn speech into text for free. This works if you’re just looking to type up a document through talking. If you’re looking for audio recording and transcribing all in one platform, it’s worth checking out Riverside instead.

How do I convert speech to text accurately?

The most accurate way to transcribe your speech into text is to do so yourself manually or hire someone to do it for you. This can be highly time-consuming or expensive if you hire someone. AI voice-to-text software might be easier, but it’s important to proofread your transcripts as they might not be as accurate. You can improve the accuracy by using a high-quality voice recorder, a good microphone, and ensuring your audio is as clear as possible.

What is the best speech-to-text software?

You should consider various features when looking for the best speech-to-text software for you. This includes price, accuracy, and speed. Some software is free, but it might not be entirely accurate or give you fast results. On the other hand, a lot of online software charges for transcription per minute, which can be a lot of money if you’re looking to transcribe hours of speech. We’ll say that Riverside is the best speech-to-text software if you’re looking for fast, accurate transcriptions straight after recording in high-quality resolution.
