    Hi Jenn

    Transcripts are an important accessibility tool but you will need to
    clean up an auto-generated version for them to be truly useful.

    AI services like Descript and Otter can get you more than halfway to a decent transcript but have their limits. They don’t always handle place names, people names or technical terms very well, so a human would still have to go through and make those corrections. But since the transcript is timestamped, you can jump to where you need to make corrections.

    They seem to work best on clear, intelligible audio, and unfortunately don’t handle heavy accents well and only support English speakers for now.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
