We all know, I think, how important it is to provide transcripts of audio material. This not only helps people whop are hard of hearing but also those who cannot play sound for some reason, for example, a broken computer or a sleeping baby. But transcription has always been expensive and slow - until now. This article mentions five apps that will automate the transcription process - and I would also add Google's sound recorder, which I use on my Pixel 4, which does a great job. Automated transcriptions aren't (yet) perfect and need to be reviewed, but they're one of the best examples of the benefits of machine learning and AI.
