    Audio/Video Transcription software???

    Someone at work recently said that there is software that exists which can transcribe spoken word (from a video or audio source) to a text document, which you can then search (as with a Word or PDF file).

    Does anyone have any info or leads on where to get this?

    Dragon Naturally Speaking Pro will do it with 98% accuracy (after training) (that means an error every 2-3 lines). You need as good of a processor as you can get with lots of RAM.

    thanks - checking out the site now.

    figures the cheaper editions won't do it!

    As a warning, I got VERY frustrated with it. I am used to dictating and having a human transcribe. The normal error rate would be about 1 typo/page (or 99.9999%). 98% did not cut it. I spent 3X as long proofing my dictations. After 2 months of use, I threw it away. (that was Dragon Pro version 10)

    good to know, thanks. It's not exactly cheap, either, so especially good to know!
