Enhanced Language Localization! Ada Dictation App is the market's best transcription App!

Ada Dictation is the best app for transcription of voice notes with high quality microphone recording and instant conversion from voice to text with advanced editing capabilities. The app records and transcribes notes for you in real-time giving you live speech transcription results, which is 7 times faster than typing. Ada Dictation is perfect for recording voice memos less than a foot away from the microphone. Ada Dictation is the best notepad for your thoughts to be recorded in the form of audio notes and text. Ada Dictation simplifies note taking and helps you take notes of all your important conversations and thoughts.

Unlike most transcription apps, Ada Dictation works offline which makes the app recordings private and unlimited. Ada Dictation is designed keeping all your interests in mind, making it a one stop solution for all your needs helping you transcribe all your lectures, interviews, meetings, and everyday voice conversations.

Want to know what the transcription accuracy is like? It's the same engine that powers the default dictation (only the default dictation doesn't have this app's text editing features, timestamp syncing, audio saving, unlimited transcription time, always offline mode, etc.). So test the limited system dictation in your preferred environment and you'll get an accurate assessment of how well Ada Dictation will perform!

Only translates about 80% right 🤦🏻‍♀️

So I have a bunch of 15 to 30 second conversation files that need to be transcribed. When running it through the app only about 80% of each of them are being transcribed properly, meaning I have to go back through and fix all the errors. It would be faster for me to transcibe myself, so I'm not too pleased with the convenience concept of this app working out as promised. I'd like my money back!

UPDATE: Their customer service is very helpful and courteous. I've given more stars for that aspect.

Incredible support

I find that the Ada dictation app does an excellent job of transcribing my voice and printing it out. The first time that I used it the only errors in the transcription were my own mis-speaks. I wish that the app could do the same for my 38 year old tapes that are of very poor quality and have a lot of background noise in them. Still, based upon how well the program worked in transcribing my voice, and the amazing quality of this companies support. Support that addressed every question that I had and did so in about an hour after I emailed in my questions.

Worked good until it stopped working

It worked good (meaning okay) untill recently. The best feature was completely on-machine transcription. No transcription is perfect — the program made correcting the inevitable errors easier by being able to associate 15-second chunks of audio with the transcribed text (it didn't loop the audio, though.)

Recently, it would freeze part way into transcribing the audio files. When I tried to delete the files and start over, the program would crash. I collected a couple of the crash reports. I used the website support page to contact the developer. Haven't heard back, but it's only been a couple of days.

As what I need to transcribe now doesn't need to be kept off the internet (for privacy reasons), I think I'll try another program.
