One of the most common questions I get from prospective users (and existing users) is whether the audio files can be converted from voice to text – this is kind of the holy grail for a lot of Livescribe users – particularly in business.

The holy grail just got a lot closer to reality as Livescribe has announced a partnership with world leading transcription services company TranscribeMe!

Livescribe partners with TranscribeMe Using the TranscribeMe service you can now use to turn the audio from your pencasts into digital documents.TranscribeMe use a hybrid of speech recognition software and actual, human transcribers to guarantee a 98 percent accuracy rate on all transcriptions.

Here’s how it works:

WiFi Smartpen Users

  1. Firstly sign up for TranscribeMe. You’ll then see a new folder in your Evernote account.
  2. Drag any pencast or audio recording into that folder or tag a file with “TranscribeMe,” and the folks at TranscribeMe will handle the rest!

Echo Smartpen Users with an Evernote Account

  1. Sign up for TranscribeMe
  2. Email the recordings to Evernote, and then drag and drop the file into the TranscribeMe folder

Echo Smartpen Users who don’t use Evernote

  1. Sign up for TranscribeMe
  2. Upload your files directly to TranscribeMe’s website.

You’ll get a transcription back within a day or two in exchange for a small fee (see here for pricing details)

You can read about the partnership on the Livescribe Noteworthy blog – click on the image below for further details on how to use the service and pricing information.

I’ll be testing this service next week with both a single voice and multi voice audio file and I’ll post here with the results.
