To convert voice recordings to text on an Android device, you can use several methods depending on whether you require real-time transcription or post-processing of existing audio files. Here are two popular approaches:

Real-Time Transcription

  1. Live Transcribe: This built-in feature on supported Android devices allows you to capture speech and display it as text on your screen. Follow these steps:

    • Install 'Live Transcribe & Sound Notifications' from the Google Play Store.
    • Launch the app and ensure you're connected to the internet.
    • Place your device's microphone close to the speaker(s), and their speech will be displayed as text on your screen.

    Note: Some Pixel phones come with Live Transcribe preinstalled. Check your device's settings for accessibility features to enable it.

Post-Processing Existing Audio Files

  1. Automated Transcription Services: There are numerous third-party applications offering automated transcription services. One such application is Transkriptor, which you can install from the Google Play Store. It supports various file formats and can convert audio to text. Here's how to use it:

    • Sign up for the service and download the app.
    • Upload your audio files or import them directly from your device.
    • Wait for the transcription to finish processing.
    • Review and download the resulting text file.
  2. Rev Voice Recorder: Another approach involves recording your notes with a dedicated app like the free Rev Voice Recorder for Android. Then, order a transcript through the app itself:

    • Record your notes using the Rev Voice Recorder app.
    • Share the audio file through the app.
    • Within the app, tap "Transcribe," and submit your audio for professional transcription.
    • Receive the completed transcript once ready.

Please remember that the accuracy of automated transcription depends on factors like audio quality, background noise, and the specific service provider. Always verify the output before relying on it completely.
