If you don’t have a transcript and want SyncWords to create one for you, choose “Create a transcript” and select one of the five available options.
Automatic Speech Recognition is a computer-generated transcript using AI technology (you can read more about it here). You can choose different ASR engines as well as apply or customize an ASR dictionary. The project processing time is approximately half the duration of the length of the media file depending on the server load and the place of your project in line. Automatic Speech Recognition does not have an additional cost and is included in the price of creating a project.
The remaining 4 options are for human transcription. If you select one of these options one of our professional transcribers will take your media and create a verbatim transcript for our system to use when generating your captions
We have Standard Transcription, 2 Business Days, Next Business Day, and Same Business Day options. The price and turnaround time for each can be seen on your project page. Please make sure to keep the Transcript Turnaround times in mind when submitting your project
By choosing a human option you can provide notes and support documents for the transcriber, including the correct spelling of names, acronym definitions, and general guidance. You may also upload support documents, such as a syllabus, agenda, or cast/speaker list.

If you already have a transcript prepared, you can upload it by clicking “I have a file to upload”. We support doc, docx, odt, and txt transcript files. Additionally, we support .SCC and.SRT caption ingestion as well.
If you would prefer to paste the transcript directly into SyncWords, you can do so by clicking "I would like to copy and paste my transcript." You can then paste your transcript into the field provided.
