Sonix was founded in 2017 in San Francisco, California. Sonix wants to help storytellers tell better stories, even if just by a little bit. They are striving to do their part in changing how people create, consume, and share not only their stories, but each others’ stories. Sonix can help podcasters transcribe their audio.
Sonix has an informative blog post titled “5 Reasons You Should Transcribe Your Podcast”. It includes the following paragraph:
By creating a text version of your podcast, you have created a place where Google can crawl and index your content. Yes, the title, tags, and description of the audio will help, but they aren’t a substitute for the entire transcript. And you might say something incredibly obscure in your podcast. There’s probably someone out there looking for that nugget of information.
Sonix transcribes your recordings so you and your team can be more productive, less stressed, and just a little bit happier. Sonix transcribes, timestamps, and organizes your audio and video files so they are easy to search, edit, and share. They offer a free trial (where the first hour of transcription is free.)
Some Sonix features include:
- Quick turnaround
- Easy uploading – Their drag-and-drop interface lets you securely upload your audio and video files in record time.
- Fast transcription – Sonix’s automated algorithms will transcribe in less time than the length of your recording.
- Email notifications – Sonix will send you an email when they are finished transcribing.
If you decide that Sonix is useful for you, there are two ways to pay for their service. Transcription costs $8.00 per hour. Membership costs $10/month, billed annually, or $15/month, billed monthly.
