Partial transcription

I’m really disappointed with this app. I just bought it recorded a four minute message and it only gave me a partial transcription, no matter how many times I played it. Very frustrating!

Developer Response ,

Sorry for that. It could be many reasons for that. Please go to Settings, scroll to the end, tap Support and drop us a line. We can help you to solve the problem.

No punctuation

From the examples, it looked like this app could make punctuation marks automatically. That was my incentive to purchase it. However when I tried it out, all it did was make words; it didn’t even make periods at the ends of sentences. Please fix this and I will raise my rating.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for reaching us. The application is using Siri at his core, and unfortunately, it cannot detect punctuation. I don't know any app which can do that automatically. You can use speech commands, such as "period" — "comma" — "new paragraph" — and so on, which are easily recognized by Siri. As some editing is always required, in the picture, we put a corrected text with no intention to misinform the users. Let's hope for the best in the new iOS 14, which may come with more improvements on that.
