Questions and Answers

How to transcribe a voice memo?

Once I've edited my voice memo, what's the easiest way to have it converted to text?

The easiest method is listening to it and typing it on a computer with a keyboard. Other methods, like buying Dragon for PC, are expensive and inaccurate. It will take much more time to correct the automatically recognized speech rather than transcribe it.

I have Voice memos which are songs recorded in my music class running into 50 min to an hour. I would like to edit this into individual songs to listen and practice. What is the recommended tool/ application available for editing the MPEG4 audio files?

I have Voice memos which are songs recorded in my music class running into 50 min to an hour. I would like to edit this into individual songs to listen and practice. What is the recommended tool/ application available for editing the MPEG4 audio files?. I have tried: I found that there is an option available in iPhone itself to trim and save. I prefer to edit the file in my computer as I can control the mouse better rather than using finger to move the button for trimming.. I think it was caused by: This is not misbehavior. It is a system design by Apple. I am trying for workaround as iTunes does not provide audio editor.

I have a long lecture (75 minutes) in which I would like to eliminate the various professorial digressions and leave the meat & potatoes. Is that possible without an additional app?

I have a long lecture (75 minutes) in which I would like to eliminate the various professorial digressions and leave the meat & potatoes. Is that possible without an additional app?. I have tried: I used the voice memo editor, but it seems that when I make a selection with the blue box, there is no provision for deleting the selection and keeping the rest of the file
