Autotekst – automatic transcription for speech to text

What is Autotekst?

Autotekst-logoen is a tool to automatically transcribe speech to text by using Google Speech to Text technology.

The service is mainly used to get captions to videos. It simplifies the process of subtitling videos by giving you a starting point, with synchronized text to the sound.


Autotekst can also be used to transcribe audio files, like recordings done with the service Nettskjema Dictaphone.
