    Good day to all. I'm just new here and badly need help. Does anybody here knows any software or service where I can transcribe my audio files into text? I have tons of it in different formats and I have no time listening to all of it and transcribe it into words. I'm willing to spend a few bucks for it but better if it will be free.

    Good day to all as well.

    Just want to share this as I have the same problem a week ago and also ask help in some forums. And these all wrapped up to my conclusion.

    Using online speech to text services you can convert audio files to text document easily and its more reliable than downloaded software.

    Dragon is the most commonly used but can't be taken for professional purposes since you still have to train it.

    You may also try a service like Speech To Text - Audio transcription service or you can hire in elance, freelance, odesk, etc.

    But one thing is for sure. As of the present technology in transcription, still nothing is free, unless you still do the work.

    Hope this adds up FYI.

    Thanks for your suggestions. Will definitely try those out as I'm a bit desperate and time pressured. Hope there still some other suggestions to come. Will keep you posted.

    Hey, Just want to keep you all posted that I tried Jason's tips (because no other suggestions here). And I was satisfied using https://speechtotextservice.com than Dragon. Turnaround speed is fast and the process to upload files is very simple. It's highly accurate and the cheapest around I guess. It was really a time-saver and I'm still using it up to now. Dragon still needs to be trained and it is very expensive IMO. Anyway, much appreciated all your help. Thanks
