converting your audio to text in a simple way

Have you got some English audio to transcribe?

You’re in the right place because I’m here to help you convert your audio recording to text.


Audio transcription has become even more popular and in-demand to capture spoken words into text documents as our ways of communicating with each other changed significantly in the past year.

I produce human-generated transcripts using only my typing hands and my ears–no automation or AI intervention whatsoever.

 

My focus is on general transcription for academic/research interviews & single-speaker transcriptions. I also enjoy working with long-form transcripts.

My name is Dee and I’m based in Indonesia. Since 2018, I’ve enjoyed transcribing for exceptional individuals from various fields of study and backgrounds around the world. My mother tongue is Bahasa Indonesia, and English comes naturally as a necessity in my previous career. 

Transcripts are beneficial for research analysis, information archiving, writing articles, accessibility, and SEO optimisation. But creating a transcript can be challenging and time-consuming. Achieve more on your tasks and let me worry about turning your audio recordings into text documents.

Accent pick-up

Picking up accents is important for a transcriber. I’m most comfortable working with the ones listed and still find Geordie accent a challenge.

accuracy rate

I’m rather of an old school in my transcription work, almost semi-Luddite. Relying on the manual method of transcription, I’m able to provide you with a high accuracy rate. Certainly, nothing beats the human ears.
