Free Super-Easy To Use Audio / Video Transcription Tool: oTranscribe

Free Super-Easy To Use Audio / Video Transcription Tool: oTranscribe | Online Video Publishing |

"A free HTML5 app to take the pain out of transcribing interviews. Useful for journalists, academics and anyone else transcribing audio."

Robin Good's insight:

oTranscribe is a free, open-source web app which allows you to easily transcribe your video by using a very simple interface.

You first upload your audio file and on the same web page you can start typing your transcription, while being able to easily start / stop the audio and to rewind or forward to any point you need to without ever needing to leave the keyboard.

The start / stop acts in a smart way, and everytime you restart the audio track after having paused it, the playback automatically starts from a second earlier from where you left. Lovely.

Playback speed control is available both through a slider and via keyboard shortcuts. You can also easily insert time stamps within the transcription by simply pressing Ctrl/Cmd+J, and then when you click one the audio jumps immediately to that specific point.

A set of useful shortcuts completes the toolkit:

Esc: Play/pause

F1: Rewind
F2: Fast-forward
F3: Slow down
F4: Speed up

Content is auto-saved automatically to your local browser.

Supported audio file formats: mp3, ogg, webm, wav

Excellent tool for anyone needing to easily transcribe any audio file. 

Free to use. Open-source.

Have Any Audio or Video File Transcribed In 2 Hours with TranscriptionStar

Have Any Audio or Video File Transcribed In 2 Hours with TranscriptionStar | Online Video Publishing |

Robin Good's insight:

While I have used CastingWords for all my video transcription needs in the past, I am always interested in learning about new alternative resources on this front.

Today I was kindly invited to check out TranscriptionStar, an online full video and audio transcription service, accepting a wide variety of file formats and providing finished work in four different file formats: PPT, TXT, PDF, XLS.

As long as you can upload your audio or video file, TranscriptionStar has everything you need to get a professional transcription (English only) even within 2 hours from your own upload (super rush TAT)*.

*I have not been able to verify this claim, nor it is clear to me, even after looking at their official rate card what the cost would be for a 2-hour rush job

For normal 24-48 hours transcriptions prices are in line with other services of this kind.
