Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do our transcription services work?

    Happy Scribe lets you choose between automatically transcribing your files or using our human transcription service. Our transcription software uses speech recognition technology. It has an accuracy of up to 85% and will get your files transcribed in minutes. The human transcription service has an accuracy of 99% and your files will be delivered in less than 24 hours.

  • How long does it take to transcribe an hour of audio?

    If you choose human transcription, the turnaround time for 1 hour audio files is 24 hours. On the other hand, if you choose automatic transcription, you will benefit from quick turnaround times. However, you might need to proofread the text files to make sure everything is alright.

  • How much does your transcription service cost?

    The price of our transcription service varies depending on the service you use.

  • Who will transcribe my video and audio files?

    If you go for our automatic transcription offer, no one will access your files outside our algorithms and you. When choosing our human transcription service, your files will be transcribed by professional transcribers to maximize the quality. Whatever is your selection, you can rest assured that both your audio and video content will remain confidential.

  • What happens if the audio quality is bad?

    The quality of your files plays an important role on the quality of the final transcript. However, our automatic audio transcription software is powerful enough to extract the speech out of any background noise. In addition to that, our human transcribers are also skilled enough to sort out any difficulty related with audio/video quality.

  • Do you offer translation services?

    Sometimes you might be in need of translating your text files, or even the subtitles you wanted to generate. We have got you covered. Even though we don't have a team of translators, we do offer an automatic translation software integrated in your user dashboard. Whenever you need to transcribe your transcripts, don't hesitate to use it. Your transcription will be translated to the language of your choice in a matter of minutes, and thanks to the timestamps you'll be able to use the translated text to create subtitles or captions.

  • Is automatic transcription better than human transcription?

    Automatic transcription is best if you need your transcript to be done quickly and don't mind proofreading the output by yourself. Human transcription is better when you need more accurate transcripts and don't mind waiting a little longer until your text transcription is ready.

    I've just discovered Happy Scribe. I tried it out on some interview videos in Ukrainian. I was very pleasantly surprised at the results and at the ease of editing the result subtitles for exporting as SRT files.
