How to transcribe an episode or media file

Whooshkaa Transcribe allows users to transcribe audio or video content from their Episodes or their media files from the Media Library. Transcripts can be manually created or created completely automatically using AI (recommended).


Automated transcription generally lasts several minutes, depending on the audio duration. The quality of the transcript itself depends on several factors and Whooshkaa works with different partners to achieve better quality for customers. For more information, please contact our support team.


Please note that Whooshkaa does not automatically initiate transcribing of media files or episodes when they are uploaded. Users need to manually initiate a transcription event as per the following guide.
