What is transcription?
To get a transcript of your audio to enable redaction, our system uses a deep learning process called automatic speech recognition to convert audio to text quickly.
- Pull up the Transcription Panel. Click Auto Transcribe.
- The Add Automatic Transcription popup will appear, showing transcription settings including Spoken Language, Speakers Identification, and Number of Speakers.
- Enter information about your audio file.
- As your transcript transcribes, the Transcription Panel will update to show you the progress of the transcription.
- Once the transcription is complete, a transcript will appear in the Transcription Panel.
Tip: Depending on the length of your file, Automatic Transcription can take anywhere from 2 minutes to 1 hour to finish. Once you add automatic transcription, check scheduled tasks (View > View Scheduled tasks) to see the progress of the transcription.
- You can play the media file and listen to the audio as you read the transcript.
- Optionally, search for words via the Transcription Panel search bar located at the top of the transcript.
- Optionally, click on any transcribed word or phrase to jump to that portion of the audio.
- Optionally, consider burning captions of the transcript to your file.
- If your transcript has errors, highlight the part of the transcript you would like to edit. Right-click. A dropdown menu will appear. Select Edit.
- The Edit Sentence popup will appear. Within this popup, you can enter your correction. After you are satisfied, click the Replace button.
- Tip: you can also use the Edit tool to find and replace all instances of a word or phrase in your transcript.
