Automated audio tran­scrip­tion (speech-to-text) works badly out of the box, especially with recordings from interviews. Yeah? You're on your own.

For­tu­nate­ly there are a bunch of ap­pli­ca­tions that stand by you. Flash­dic­ta­tor is one of them. It helps you to transcript an earlier recorded interview.

That all about it.
