Happy Scribe

Transcription software for audio to text conversions

About Happy Scribe

Happy Scribe is a cloud-based transcription software, which helps journalists, researchers, podcasters, and video editors convert audio and video files into text documents on a unified portal. The platform allows users to store proper nouns, acronyms, and other terminologies in a personalized vocabulary for reference during future projects.

Happy Scribe includes punctuation functionality, which automatically inserts full stops, commas, interrogation, and exclamation marks across the text. The application creates new paragraphs based on speakers, includes subtitles, and lets administrators add notes and edit transcripts in real-time. Marketers can also embed a transcription player into websites and configure timecodes, frames, and playback speed in videos according to the subtitles to improve search engine optimization (SEO).

Happy Scribe enables users to store files using PCI DSS, ISO, HTTPS, TLS, and other security standards and share them with external or internal stakeholders to collaborate on multiple projects. It also offers REST APIs to facilitate authentication, data uploading, signed URL generation, and other operations.

It is useful, helpful, effective and applicable, but I have not tested this tool enough. I need more opportunities in trial versions or lower pricing policies.

Pros

Powerful and impressive software which can be extremely useful as an accent coach. However I really dislike huge restrictions in a trial version. I use Linux, Ubuntu, there are a lot of installed extensions and plugins in my browsers and I need more time and resources to check up all the functions. But looks like it is pretty user-friendly and effortless to use, however I managed to check up only by using 4 videos (2 accounts of my friends and two are mine). The transcriptions are almost ideal, detailed, precise and accurate. I did not manage to test huge files or different formats. I have not activated a paid option yet -- but I am looking forward to that. Hopefully, the website provides the services of the same quality for premium access users. I am going to check up all the options and functions of this tool in the near future.

Cons

I cannot judge basing on 4 transcriptions. Yes, they were detailed, precise and accurate, yes, the service is careful and adequate, but I cannot be 100% sure about performance, speed, adjustability and compatibility of the tool basing on the extremely limited trial version. I don't know how fast, efficient, effortless and practical this thing would be if I used large files or some funny file formats.

Happy Scribe has made me very Happy!

In addition to creating my captions and transcribing my own videos, I've loved using Happy Scribe to save time. I appreciate being able to transcribe other people's videos so I can read the script rather than have to watch a video when I'm pushed for time or need to go back and refer to detailed information. Also they are a really friendly team with great communication!

Pros

Happy Scribe is a pleasure to use! I have been so impressed with this software - the dashboard is intuitive and the options are just what I was looking for. Transcribing videos and creating captions is a breeze with Happy Scribe. You get highly professional results without any tech hassle. I love the options provided and it's saving me loads of time.

Cons

There really isn't anything I dislike about this software. It's easy to use, great dashboard, doesn't take long to process and produces lovely results.

Happy Scribe helps me save time by very quickly generating the transcript and subtitles for any videos I upload. No long waiting periods and I can immediately incorporate captions on my vdieo in a variety of styles.

Pros

This is a must-have to make your videos more accessible on social media. I like most the ability to get the transcription and generate subtitles in the same tool.

Cons

The speech to text technology here is not perfect but close enough to save time if you've been doing it manually. If your transcript is highly technical, you'll want to use something like Rev.

I tried this because of a lifetime deal, and must say I'm very pleased. In the past we've used Rev.com and GoTranscript, both worthy services. They cost more, though, and even so do not produce perfect transcripts. HappyScribe does nearly as well for a lower price.

Pros

This voice recognition is better than others I've tried, including from Otter.io. That talent is wrapped in an intuitive editor to make for a powerful transcription service.

Cons

I like using human transcriptionists, not least because I resist the idea that AI can do as well as we can. However, for the price I find this to be reasonable.
The editor, while very nice, is not flawless. A few more performance tweaks could make it even more user-friendly.
