How accurate is Cassette transcription?

We’ve seen Cassette accuracy above 90% under test conditions, but variations in speaking style and background noise can affect accuracy. However, our users find that even suboptimal accuracy adds value by enabling them to use Search or skim the transcript & skip to the relevant parts. We're always working on improving transcription accuracy, as well as adding features like manual editing and alternate word suggestions, to help make transcripts more accurate.

If you found transcription quality to not be up to par, try one of these suggestions:

  • Record in a quiet space with minimal background noise
  • Keep your device no more than a few feet away from the speaker
  • Orient your microphone towards the speaker
  • Use a fast data connection or WiFi
