The Best Way To Automatically Transcribe Videos… Free!

Transcribing your videos is a great way to easily repurpose your content or generate video descriptions. There are a tonne of options out there to automate the process. I’ve tried plenty, BUT unfortunately (maybe it’s just my accent) the results have been pretty bad with most options; except one…

Here’s the BEST way to transcribe video automatically (oh, and it’s also free!)

You might have heard Google (Google Now), Apple (Siri) and Microsoft (Cortana) have been investing a LOT in their virtual assistant apps over the past few years. The voice recognition in these services is getting pretty amazing – even for my Aussie accent! With the amount these guys are investing, it’s not hard to see why they can generate results a lot of the built-for-purpose software packages just cant match when transcribing audio.

I’ll show you how to make the most of these services for transcribing your videos – the best way to automatically transcribe videos… Free!

UPDATE: It seems Google now requires you to be using the Chrome browser (on PC or Mac) in order to enable Google Now. If you’re having any issues, make sure you’re using Chrome!

I have a South African accent, so it’s not perfect YET — but I’m super glad you showed me this option! Thanks Justin.


Another awesome tip Justin!

I have the Galaxy S6 and don’t see the mic icon in my editor.

Have even downloaded the One Note app which allows me to record voice but thats a separate file – no text 🙁

What am I doing wrong?

Many Thanks,

I cannot find the mic

Use the one that’s on the build in Samsung Keyboard. It’s typically hidden under the settings ‘cog wheel’ button. So you’ll need to long press on that to be able to select it. If for some reason you still cant find it, try the google keyboard and enable google voice typing.
