Overcast MAX #3: Max Transcribe

Wondering how using AI to automatically transcribe audio to text could rock your world?

Remember when transcription jobs meant typing out every word in a video or audio clip by hand in order to add subtitles? Not our favourite memory of “the good old days”!!

It was a slow, laborious, mundane and uninteresting task. However, it had to be done. 

Thank goodness AI transcription software has saved us from this nightmare!

Transcribe audio to text using AI

Nowadays, transcription is automated and effortless via the magic touch of artificial intelligence (AI). 

Max Transcribe uses the latest AI and Machine Learning (ML) to transcribe the audio content in a video, generating subtitles on the fly.

Case studies: transcribe audio to text

Call centre

Imagine how many hundreds of millions of minutes of customer interactions each year a call centre has. Now imagine how long it would take a typist to manually transcribe those calls. Using AI and ML, you can quickly generate accurate call transcriptions while also redacting sensitive data.

Multilingual video content

It’s not just movies that need to be translated into other languages. Nowadays, most enterprises are producing vast amounts of video content — and many want to reach potential customers in other countries. By using AI and ML that can translate content into many different languages and customize speech recognition, you’ll save your team a lot of time and yourself a lot of money.

Podcasts and radio

So, you have a great podcast or radio programme and you’d like as many people as possible to benefit from the content. But many listeners want to consume it in short segments. Plus, you need it to come up in search results. You can use AI / ML transcription to convert your audio streams into text for a reasonable cost. This allows you to quickly process live talk audio into consumable segments — as a result, you’ll get higher engagement.
