Dear Shunji

My team recently developed an automated transcription tool, Transcribear (https://transcribear.com/) , and it supports New Zealand English. As Michael Pace-Sigge pointed out, it may not be 100% accurate, but our experience indicates that it saves between 50%-95% of the time, depending on quality of recording, accent, number of speakers, etc.

Dear fellow corpus linguists,

Can anyone recommend to me software which can accurately transcribe speech? I am planning to collect New Zealand English spoken corpora by using an IC recorder which records interviewees’ speech. I would like to use the software to transcribe that spoken data into written form. The software does need to be able to deal with the New Zealand accent, but does not necessarily have to be free.

Thanks in advance,
