About Sonix

Sonix is an audio and video transcription solution that enables businesses to transcribe, organize and search video and audio files. The fully automated software is able to transcribe 30 minutes of audio or video in approximately 3-4 minutes, for industries that require quick and stress-free transcription services.

As automated transcripts are not 100% accurate, Sonix allows the reviewing and editing of transcripts, with features including the online editor which allows users to polish a transcript while listening to the audio, and word confidence levels which highlight words that may need extra review due to low confidence during the transcription process. The user can also highlight and strikethrough the transcript to quickly find areas of focus later.

Sonix facilitates uploading and importing of videos and audio, with tools for allowing the user to drag and drop files from their local computer or have the software transcribe files stored on Google Drive and Dropbox. To aid with review, text and audio is synchronized to allow the user to click on any part of the transcript and play the audio from that exact moment.

Every word within transcripts is automatically indexed so that the user can jump to the exact moment when something was said in the file. Users can also slow down or speed up playback to simplify and ease the editing process. The high confidence words are shown in black while the low ones are highlighted in orange, so that the user know where to focus their attention when editing. The user can download a section of the audio by selecting that area of text, and Sonix allows the export of transcripts into various formats such as Microsoft Word and text file.

    Sonix has been a huge help for our small media production team to create and edit transcripts for documentary film projects. The pricing is great compared to other services, especially if you're working with larger volumes, and the editing interface is simply a pleasure to use.

    Pros

    Sonix has the best online editor of any transcription service we've tried. I love all the export format options and organizational abilities. Sonix makes the task of creating interview transcripts simple and fun.

    Cons

    I wish there was a little more control over how SRT subtitles are exported, especially the ability to automatically split subtitles at the end of sentences. Also, it would be nice if Sonix could better identify speakers automatically.

    Pros

    It's an really good web editor. Innovative with SEO friendly media embeds, and provides good automated service with a nice group of editing tools.

    Cons

    Prices are high prices and its performance could be iffy, unreliable if you work with complex files.

    Response from Sonix

    Sonix works best with high quality audio. If you audio has background noise, people talking over each other, or strong accents, the resulting transcript will be affected. We published this page to help users capture clear audio: https://sonix.ai/greataudio

    It allows a greater benefit saving time and I can make my projects faster, being able to quickly transcribe audio and make it searchable is the greatest benefit. The recording, transcription and editing functions are really good and easy to use ..

    Pros

    The editing functionality is very good it does a very good job of transcription, so it really is not necessary to make many modifications to the transcribed text. The design is very clear, which facilitates its use and allows you to upload files in a fast and efficient way, the editing functionality that you have is very complete allowing the audio track and the transcribed text to be synchronized so that it is really easy to follow the audio and make online editions of the transcribed text

    Excellent!

    Pros

    All the languages that it can recognise and the speed and accuracy of the speech recognition and time stamps

    Cons

    I've only used the automatic translation once and, besides I was told that the translation is robotic and required a little bit of editing) the timing of the subtitles was affected to the point they were appearing at the wrong times
