There are a wide variety of both aging and new transcription apps on the market for speech to text services.
The older, established transcription app, such as Nuance Dragon is useful for single speaker dictation solutions and also work on offering industry-focused solutions that include document storing, etc. for users.
On the other hand, more recent speech-to-text apps emerging from VC stables or recently set up tech companies are racing fast towards offering a near-time highly accurate transcription app or speech to text solution. A good example of this is the very recently launched live translator (Pilot) which offers almost live time translation of persons speaking to each other in two different languages. Technologies are also addressing user experience by addressing simpler combined solutions or communication products such as Audio Notetaker where users have a more visual manner of handling recordings and can then transcribe them as required by either bits/ sections or whole recording.
What is the best app? or…
When asking what the best transcription app is, you might also want to keep in mind many transcription services that offer an app solution are not actually providing much more than a linking stream process to upload recordings back into their existing workflow systems (sometimes through third party vendors). Interestingly, you may also find that the initial “simple price” changes once you sign up and then have to go through a lengthy set of choices that impact your bottom-line when calculating the final (actual!) cost to user. So what you initially see, is often not what you end up in terms of cost.
