Is there an app that converts voice recording to text free?

Yes, some platforms offer free conversion of spoken words to written text. However, the issue is that their transcriptions aren't always very accurate or dependable. This means you might have to spend extra time checking and fixing the text.

Here are a few free services for converting voice memos to text:

  • Google's keyboard app, called Gboard, has a feature for voice typing.

  • In Google Docs, there's a Voice typing option under the 'Tools' section when you're writing a document. You can play your recordings, and it will change what you say into text. Microsoft Word also has something similar.

  • Apple provides a tool that turns spoken words into written text.

The problems with using these services are:

  • They can't tell different voices apart or capture different tones.

  • Their punctuation isn't very accurate most of the time.

  • You need two devices: one to play the sound and another to listen and write it down.

The Notta app is available for free download from the Apple App Store or Google Play. You can try it for three days at no cost using your Google or Apple ID. During these three days, you can access all the features for free and transcribe up to 1,800 minutes of audio.

What is the best App for voice to text?

There are several lightweight applications with minimal functionalities available on the market. Notta is the best option if you need a more complex transcription tool. The Notta mobile app allows you to convert audio to text using your phone anytime and in any situation. Notta is free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

How to transcribe voice memos on Mac?

You can use the Dictation feature built into your Mac to transcribe audio files:

Step 1: Go to your Mac's System Preferences. Click on "Keyboard," then choose the "Dictation" tab.

Step 2: Turn on Dictation, and when it asks, agree to Apple's Dictation terms. Remember the way you're supposed to activate dictation, like pressing a specific key or a certain combination of keys. You'll use this later.

Step 3: Make sure your Mac's microphone is chosen, then open TextEdit and start a new document.

Step 4: Use the dictation shortcut you noted earlier (like pressing the dictation key), and play your audio through your Mac's speakers. The microphone will pick up the sound and change it into text, directly into your open document.

Alternatively: Using Notta for Easier Organization:

Step 1: Sign up and log in to Notta. Click on 'Import Files,' pick the language for transcription, then either drag your voice memos or choose them by clicking 'Select documents.' We accept WAV, MP3, M4A, CAF, and AIFF audio formats.

Step 2: Once the upload is done, the conversion from audio to text will begin right away. You can edit, add notes, images, and to-dos for your future reference.

Step 3: Click 'Export' to save the transcription in TXT, DOCX, SRT, or PDF formats. If you only want to share specific parts of the memo, you can choose those sections and generate separate clips by clicking 'Share.'
