80507 - ECHO/PULSE – Using TranscribeMe to convert audio to text

How do I export my audio files so I can have my audio files transcribed to text?

Exporting your Echo or Pulse smartpen audio sessions for use with TranscribeMe's audio transcription service, you will need to use an Evernote account that you can add your audio files to.   TranscribeMe is a pay by the minute service that allows you to record a single speaker or multiple speakers using your smartpen and then convert that conversation to text - http://transcribeme.com/.  

There are two steps to this process:

  1. Export your audio files.
  2. Move them to Evernote.



  1. Access Audio View (Windows) / AUDIO Pencasts View (Mac).
  2. Select the audio file you'd like to share.
  3. Windows users - Right-click on the file and select "Share <file name> to…"  Mac users - Select the "Share" icon in the upper left hand corner.
  4. Select "Computer…"
  5. Select the "Audio Only" tab.  
  6. Select the "M4A" format.
  7. Click "Continue" (Win) / "Export" (Mac) and save the file.

  3. Follow the steps to create a TranscribeMe account and link it to your Evernote account - http://portal.transcribeme.com/Account/Register.
