textshark Frequently Asked Questions
How easy is your system to implement?
Generally, it will take a developer under an hour to implement a first version interface to the textshark system. This proof of concept will allow the uploading of an audio file and a receipt of the translated text.
How long does transcription take?
Transcription takes approximately 1 minute of time for each 1 minute of audio provided. You should receive the transcribed text back within a minute or two past the length of the audio file uploaded.
How accurate is your transcription?
Machine transcription is 60-70% accurate. Our engine has been demonstrated to be more accurate than Google's transcription service. Only expensive human transcription can get 99%+ accuracy. Because of the accuracy inherent in machine transcription, it is best used for statistical modelling and insight across a larger data set.
Who are your competitors?
No one currently offers machine transcription as a service (TaaS). There are a variety of competitors that offer human transcription at $.80-$1+ per minute; however, those are best suited to applications like legal transcription where 99% accuracy is required
