For Your Thesis
Speech to text software can be used in the writing of theses. First, you can use these tools to quickly write your thesis. You may think that you type quickly, but according to statistics, the average person can dictate about 190 words in a minute, which is much faster than the average typing speed of 45 words per minute.
Similarly, speech to text software can help you take notes as you carry out your research. It is easier to store your notes on your desktop device, as this reduces the hassle of finding them later. You just need to use the search function to find the data.
When carrying out research for your thesis, you will come across lectures, interviews, presentations, meetings, and multi-speaker events which could provide you with valuable data for your project. Instead of listening to hours of speeches, you can convert the speech to text and go through them at your convenience.
Your thesis needs to be perfect, and that means you have to proofread it once you’re done typing it. Most speech to text tools will be able to read back the transcribed text so that you can fix any errors that you may have missed.
The speech to text software you use should not store any of the materials you have sent for transcription. Some of these tools also use human transcribers, and they protect your confidentiality by only giving each person a small portion of the audio material. Once the job is done, you will receive your text and they will delete the files from their system.
