Here’s a great piece written by Adam Turner of the Sydney Morning Herald which compares and contrasts Australian English cloud-based automatic transcription services.

Automatic Transcription Services

In the article, Adam discusses the economic advantages of using an Automatic Speech Recognition based transcription service, especially as the recent improvement in accuracy mean the system “…can often transcribe entire paragraphs with no mistakes”.

We would like though to offer a couple of minor corrections to the article in that Speechmatics does indeed offer a simple to use API interface and that our output does offer time-alignment of the transcription back to the original audio.

Thanks go to Adam for your vote of confidence in Speechmatics.
