We do audio to text conversion using state-of-the-art automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology. We guarantee that you won't find a more accurate automatic transcription service, and if you find a better transcription elsewhere we'll refund your purchase.

While we don't have a strict limit, we don't recommend uploading audio files bigger than 3GB.
