Manual transcription is both time-consuming and costly. With reasonable transcription coming in at $100-200 per hour and often taking days to deliver, it’s a painful process that’s outdated – especially with the rapid advancements in AI and modern speech-to-text technology. Lstn was set up to address the challenges that have plagued journalists, lawyers, media professionals and more by letting users to achieve the same accuracy as manual transcription. But Lstn is much faster and cheaper with its Lstn auto-transcription and verification tools.
Lstn quickly gives users the ability to search, verify, correct, edit and export the usable content of recorded speech. Importantly however, Lstn is much more than a substitute for manual transcription, allowing the user to effortlessly share edited or extracted audio/video/text content to both traditional platforms (print, radio, TV), online and social media.
LSTN usually converts video or audio to text in less time than the length of the file. For example a 45 minute video interview would typically take less that 45 minutes. That being said a solid internet connection will help deliver the speediest results.
