The Best Apps for Transcribing Lectures & Converting Speech to Text on Your iPhone

TECH SINGH Urs opened each app on test iPhone and played the recordings from three feet away for the apps to record and transcribe.Then calculated a score based on how many words were missed or erroneously transcribed, and determined the average score gathered from the numbers for each test. So, without further ado, here’s list for the best transcribing apps for iOS.

App 1


TranscribeMe is a great all around speech-to-text app that’s sure to meet all your transcribing needs. This app can fit into almost any budget, regardless of whether you’re a student with limited finances or a high-powered lawyer who needs the most accurate transcriptions possible. The app is free to download, and gives you the most variety in terms of transcription services.


Rev Voice Recorder

Rev Voice Recorder is a great alternative for those seeking professional transcription services at a slightly lower price compared to TranscribeMe’s premium transcription services. Like all the other apps on this list, Rev Voice Recorder is free to download from the iOS App Store.


The fourth app on this list is the aptly-named Transcribe. Like TranscribeMe and Rev Voice Recorder, the app is free to download and charges a time-based fee to use its services. Transcribe, however, deviates from its competitors’ formulas in some key aspects.

App 5


Voicera is perhaps the most accessible app on this list, and features an intuitive UI that lets you hit the ground running with regards to recording audio files and transcriptions. And best of all, the transcribing app is completely free to install and use.
