Steno: live transcription

Blueshift Development
Start with an hour of live voice transcription in multiple languages! Tap a word in the transcript to jump straight to that point in the audio, and vice versa. Edit the transcript right in the app.

You can even import audio from other apps and transcribe them automatically.

When you download the app, you get 60 premium minutes of transcription to start, the option of buying on-demand premium minutes. And you get a recorder that (with or without transcription enabled) lets you:

* Add bookmarks. Export timestamps, bookmarks and text compatible with 3rd party software.
* Zoom in on the audio waveform for precise seeking and trimming files.
* Slow down audio without changing the pitch.
* Easily jump backwards and forwards in the audio 15 seconds.
* Automatically upload your recording and/or transcription to a variety of cloud services.
* Share text and audio with options like email or messaging.
* Choose different fonts and text sizes in the editor.
* Follow along with the audio with text highlighting in the editor.
* Search your recordings in the list screen.
* Have the option to automatically add the time, date and location of your recording when you start recording.

Actual user reviews:

"I do transcription work and I use this app to transfer the audio file to my phone. It does a draft transcription that I can then edit as I listen to my files - with my AirPods instead of being stuck at one computer. Very helpful. And premium minutes are very accurate."

"Great app for all purpose noretaking when you don't feel like writing it all down by hand. Gets it 90% of the way there basically instantly."

"I've tried a lot of transcription stuff in the past, but this is the first one that actually does the job and does so easily and beautifully. Awesome all around."
