LiveScribe Partners with TranscribeMe
Livescribe collaborated with crowdsourcing technology company TranscribeMe to provide Livescribe smartpen customers a simple, integrated solution for transcribing their recorded audio notes.
By simply tagging a pencast through Evernote or by uploading it to the TranscribeMe Web site, smartpen notetakers can automatically send their audio recordings to TranscribeMe and receive a transcription within one to two days for a small fee.
Transcribed notes are integrated into customers’ existing Evernote accounts or delivered to their email inboxes. This functionality is now available to all Livescribe smartpen customers along with an exclusive introductory offer of five free minutes for transcription services from TranscribeMe.
After signing up for TranscribeMe, owners of the Sky wi-fi smartpen will find a new folder in their personal Evernote accounts. By simply dragging pencasts or audio recordings into this folder, the content will be sent directly to TranscribeMe for transcription. This can also be achieved by tagging pencasts with “TranscribeMe” in Evernote. Echo smartpen owners can email their recordings to Evernote, and then either drag the files to the TranscribeMe folder or tag them.
TranscribeMe boasts a 98 percent accuracy rate of all transcriptions and guarantees this by having both speech recognition software and actual human transcribers work on the transcriptions.
Single-speaker recordings, such as dictations, podcasts, lectures, conferences, and meeting notes, can be transcribed at a rate of $1 per minute, while recordings with multiple speakers, such as business meetings, interviews, discussion panels, or talk shows, are transcribed for $2 per minute, with special rates available for corporate and high-volume use.
