Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership and integration with Dropbox to bring the intelligent speech transcription capabilities from ascribe.ai to your Dropbox content. By leveraging powerful AI capabilities in ascribe.ai with Dropbox’s revolutionary smart workspace approach to content, the new ascribe.ai app enables new workflows for distributed teams. Remote editors and those currently working from home can now access and transcribe their media from anywhere with Dropbox and ascribe.ai accounts.ascribe.ai is available for free download for MacOS and Windows from ascribe.ai – transcription starts at under $2 an hour and you receive a free hour of transcription just by creating an account.
Ascribe.ai uses the same axle ai speech services employed by our groundbreaking ascribe.ai panels for Adobe Premiere Pro, as well as our industry-leading axle ai 2020 media management system for small and midsize video teams. The ascribe.ai app runs directly on any MacOS or Windows system running current versions of each platform, and connects with the axle ai Speech cloud service to perform the transcription, as well as Dropbox as a source for the transcribed files and destination for the resulting transcripts. Instead of sending the whole video file to be transcribed, ascribe.ai creates an audio-only file that’s quickly processed in the background.
The app displays this transcript and displays an editable version via a self-explanatory user interface. The whole process is faster than realtime, with each minute of footage transcribed and results returned to the app in as little as 10 seconds. The app can store the resulting transcripts in Dropbox, and write sidecar XMP metadata files or industry-standard SRT caption files. Languages supported in this release are English (both American and British dialects), Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Korean.
Want to see it in action? We’ll be hosting two webinars in the coming week to give a live demo and Q&A of how you can make your media work for you with ascribe.ai and Dropbox. Register for these and other events at axle.ai/events
