FAQs

Absolutely. We’ll even give you free credits to try out our transcription as well as our formatting and understanding features. No credit card required.

What’s the difference between Base and Enhanced model tiers?

Our Base models are built on our signature end-to-end deep learning speech model architecture and offer a solid combination of accuracy and cost-effectiveness. Our Enhanced models generally have even higher accuracy and handle uncommon words significantly better.
