I am working on one project that consist of around 10hrs of data and what i have to do is sorting out few key highlight topics that client has provided me. it is very difficult to sort out few important lines from that 10hrs of topic.
so, what i was thinking of converting the audio of 10hrs footages in to text. so that i can easily search the data i want by searching from ms word.
so, is there any possibility of converting audio in to text?
Not really... Adobe first included a speech/audio to text feature in CS4 that was not really accurate enough for most users to make it valuable, but they promised it would improve with further development by its 3rd party manufacturer. Last year, after several years of no substantial improvement Adobe dropped it. There are tumors of other companies coming out with better and more accurate speech/audio to text apps, but so far nothing better is available.
