Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Cmu SPphinx reviews

Sphinx is easy to install and setup and performs surprisingly well without any forced grammar. With PocketSphinx you can easily get some results, enabling you to focus more on configuring sphinx for your project at hand. The support is excellent, both in reaction time (on the forums and the IRC channel) and of high quality.

"The program can't start because MSVCR110.dll is missing" Despite the fact I DO have it installed. This program will waste your time as it doesn't work.

The Telegram group is a great idea, but Nikolay doesnt answer right. Not everybody can dedicate their lifes to "speech recognition". EDIT: I was 2 harsh on him. He is trying his best to help people, even tho , he doesnt have to (join the telegram group and see it yourself) . If you want to use CMUSphinx, do it. But it isn´t the easiest. Thank you Nikolay <3

Express Scribe reviews

Generally, I think express scribe is the best software for transcribing. No tool can much up to the functionality that comes with it. I would advice an upcoming transcriber to give it a shot.

- Caroline I.

I used it for a few years with general transcription as a free product and it worked okay. I stopped using it for 5 years when I worked for a company that had it's own software. When I became an independent contractor and tried to use Express Scribe again, it was very expensive, I could not get the trial to even work properly, and the sound quality was TERRIBLE. I went searching for something else and found something that was way better in every way and have used that software ever since.

Generally, I think Express Scribe is the best tool for transcription. I have not come across a software that beats Express scribe regarding transcription functionality.
