A long shot, but does anyone have any experience with transcribing audio? How is it done?

I tried slowing the audio down through VLC to be able to keep up with typing, but that makes it difficult to understand what’s being said. I’d be surprised if there wasn’t some easier way.


@jkreeftmeijer My partner used f4transkript in her Master’s Thesis. It’s not free but worked well. audiotranskription.de/english/

Another tool that comes to mind is Praat but I think that’s more geared toward phonetic analysis/transcription. github.com/praat/praat

@janw Those look great indeed. I’m taking Amazon Transcribe for a spin (which looks like it’ll transcribe Dutch), but I’ll certainly try these out if that doesn’t work out. Thanks!
