What is unique about Dictation by Blueshift?
So many apps require that audio be sent to a server. Using machine learning on the device, the app is able to do everything live and locally, without sending the audio anywhere. This also makes transcription more affordable. Transcription can cost around $10 per month for only a limited amount of transcription minutes, or even $1 per minute for hand-crafted transcription. Dictation by Blueshift is able to keep the quality and avoid the cost of third-party services, bringing rates down to $20 per year for an unlimited number of minutes.
The app lets you record live in the app so that you don't spend more time re-analyzing the audio. However, Dictation also lets you import files with audio, including movies.
What is the quality like, and what are some tips to getting good accuracy?
The quality is on par with Apple's Siri. It works best when the microphone is about half an arm's length away, a natural phone holding position, for instance. It also works best when recording a person directly, instead of from a speaker.
Because no automated transcription service ever gets things completely right, the Dictation gives tools to correct from inside the app. A person can tap on text and the audio will jump to that point in the recording. Text is automatically highlighted. You can use bookmarks. And tapping a waveform will jump to that point in the transcript. We aim to make editing the transcription draft easy.
Why make Dictation by Blueshift?
I started out as a journalist, and transcribing was always an unwelcome grind. And even with this app, it's not meant to replace people doing transcription, rather to help remove grunt work and get a solid start on a project.
