This article explains how Happy Scribe's AI Assist tool can make your life easier by automatically summarizing your transcriptions into short, medium, or long summaries, saving you both time and money.

Imagine yourself working on a research paper, transcribing dozens of interviews - hopefully using Happy Scribe’s automatic transcription module - and you need to discover patterns and trends in the transcriptions. Summarizing these transcriptions can then be very handy, not only for academic purposes.

It's a bit of a chore to read through the whole thing just to find the main points, right? Or, you've got a long chat, filled with all the usual pleasantries and small talk. That's where AI comes in, summarizing the important bits to make things easier to read. More particularly, Happy Scribe’s AI Assist model lets you automatically summarize your transcription.

Automatic speech recognition (ASR)

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is pretty neat - it's how we translate spoken words into written text. In this piece, we're going to dive into different ways to summarize text once we've got a transcript or document.

Text summarization can be a real time and money saver for businesses. It makes it quicker to understand what's going on, cheaper than hiring consultants, and it can create high-quality summaries to boot. Happy Scribeoffers text summarization as a feature, along with other things like creating blog posts, e-mails and chapters.
