Artificial intelligence can be briefly described as combining large amounts of data with fast, iterative processing and intelligent algorithms, allowing software to learn automatically from patterns or features in the data.
AI is short for artificial intelligence, which is the ability of machines to sense their environment, deal with what they detect and solve problems. Natural language processing and speech recognition, for example, are some specific applications of AI.
A branch of artificial intelligence is speech recognition technology, which is used by companies in many business areas to support digitalization and speed up workflows.
Solutions such as the Alrite speech to text app can automatically recognize speech and generate text from it, which is the essence of automatic transcription systems.
Transcriptions can make recorded materials such as interviews and meetings, phone calls readable, retrievable so in this form it is easier to analyze them. Transcripts and captions support the deaf and hard of hearing by making the audio and video content accessible. Furthermore, adding text to video content increases SEO ranking too.
Transcription is used in many different areas, for example it is a helpful tool for journalists in the media sector for recording and processing interviews. It helps saving loads of time in the social and governmental sector by automatically generating minutes of the general assembly. Speech to text solution is popular in the academic life among researchers in complying their qualitative analysis of interviews.

Automated speech to text services can convert pre-existing or recorded audio material into text within seconds or minutes. They do so with the help of AI.
For instance, the Alrite speech to text software utilizes AI to provide speech transcription in 9 languages, automated translation, automated captioning, and more!
The accuracy of the automated transcript depends first and foremost on the quality of the audio or video file recorded or uploaded, and the intelligibility of the speech.
The accuracy of the transcript generated in the Alrite speech to text app can be affected by several factors: the acoustic conditions of the room, the multi-directional sound source, the volume of the speech and the distance of the speakers from the microphone.
A good quality transcript can be as accurate as 90-95%. By increasing the volume of the speech and shortening the distance between the speaker and the recording device, by placing the speaker in the right direction, the intelligibility of the recorded speech and thus the accuracy of the resulting transcript can be greatly improved.
If you are recording with a mobile device:
All features of the Alrite speech to text web application require a stable internet connection, while with the mobile application audio or video can be recorded offline.
Once recorded with the Alrite mobile app, the recording is stored in the mobile device's memory and is temporarily (as long as it remains logged in) added to the 'Files waiting to be Uploaded' in the Alrite mobile app.
In order to generate transcript and captions of the mobile app recording, you will need to upload the file, which again requires an internet connection.
You can choose to upload the file immediately before processing recordings recorded with the Alrite mobile app, or you can listen back, save and send the recording.
Files that you do not want to process immediately after you have finished recording in the mobile app are temporarily (while you remain logged into the app) stored in the phone's internal memory and are stored in a separate folder in the app, from which you can upload or delete them.
Video recording is also possible in the Alrite mobile app, after enabling access to the phone's microphone and camera.
