Here are some of the most frequent questions and answers amazing researchers like you ask us.

With good audio quality and a clear articulate speaker, you can get an 85% to 98% accurate transcription. Poor audio quality, industry-specific terms, and accents can reduce accuracy and speaker identification. Speak will analyze the file and clean up telephony audio or noisy recordings. We continue to improve our technology and increase our automated analysis accuracy.

Speak is built for ease-of-use. We are capable of analyzing most popular video files including MP4, QuickTime, FLV, WebM and AVI. We also support mainstream audio files including MP3, FLAC, AAC and WAV.

As speech recognition grows, several companies have built speech-to-text technology. Most automated transcription companies range from $0.10 USD to $2.00 USD per minute. We are competitively priced and unlike transcription companies, analyze video or audio which provides additional value through export options. This includes valuable insights like topics, keywords, and brands using our machine learning algorithms. Soon, you will be able to access our automated analysis at any time with our intuitive web and mobile application.

When you create an account, you can easily upload audio and video files through a web interface. As soon as your transcription is done, you will get an interactive media player. You can navigate your file and edit the media there, or export to a Word Doc (.doc), PDF (.pdf), SRT and VTT. 

Although it can range depending on how optimized your audio and video files are and how busy our servers are, Speak aims to deliver a 1:1 ratio. A 10-minute video should take 10 minutes to get back after upload. Audio is often much quicker. 

We currently have monthly and annual plans and a pay-as-you-go system that allows upload audio and video at anytime. Upload your file, payment is subtracted from your balance or allotted hours, or charged to your credit card and placed in the audio or video folder.
