I'm trying to write a book (emphasis on 'trying').

I'm looking for some kind of an application, preferably free (or cheap), which can reasonably transcribe .mp3 into text, like a Word document. Just plain text (.txt) is fine, just need to get the audio into a text format without having to retype all of that audio myself.

I write a lot, some with pencil, some typing...and also quite a bit in audio while driving or not someplace where I can write or type.

Anyone have any suggestions??

All help would be appreciated!

You need some kind of argorythym type caption application then. Something like text to speech. If they made a voice recorder to do this, somebodies bankin some cash.

There is a YouTube to text website, some member posted it today in its OP, thread was about a medical conference.

You could upload it to yt and then use that.

C sharp framework has speech recognition, but if you're not aware off it you probably can't write c sharp.

The costs of online transcription is huge! No way am I doing that...until I get a bestseller going. At the moment, Stephen King I am NOT. Just an amateur.

Also, just as a note, I have a little voice recorder I use to record so I don't have to put any of this on my phone. I know there are some cloud services which use your phone, but I'm sure the reason they are on your phone and not available for a laptop is because they're stealing the audio.

Exactly! That's what I'm hoping to find.

If I could play the mp3 audio into a speech to text app, that might work.

But finding a app and what proper keywords to search for it? If not then we might have stumbled onto something?

Speech-to-text is the term you are looking for.

Update....

I actually figured it out...and it's way easier than I thought!

I just used MS Word to do it.

It's the "dictate" function.

Cool i figured there was a way. Being a Guitarist I have been through many voice recorders to record my sessions and never heard of this on a Mp3 recorder. even the Zooms or Tascam recorders's which can get pricey. But I did know my phone has this function.

Glad you found what you needed.

BTW, I dig you and your post's. I have learned a lot.

Eric Bana as 'Chopper' is one of the best performances in film history. Probably in the top ten all time greatest.

He did a excellent take on Chopper and kept it real every Australian i talked to was shocked that he acted so well for a comedian , the fake chopper Ronnie johns is a good laugh but the real chopper hated him

There used to be "Dragon Dictate" which was one of the better voice to text softwares 'back in the day'.

Not sure if it has kept up with the times though.

Cool, glad you found that the Word app does that - I didn't know.
I was going to suggest using the voice feature in text then copy-pasting to email to yourself, but if it works in Word that's good to know, I could use that on my notepad.
You came with a question but gave me an answer. Thanks!

edit to add oops thought you were the OP for sec but nope. but still thanks!
