Automatic transcription for your audio or video recording is now available on UserBit. It comes with a host of really powerful features that we'll dive into in this post - in the form of an FAQ:

How do I get started?

When you upload an audio or a video file in Notes & Media section of your project, you'll now see a 'Transcribe' button on top of the player.

Will I lose my existing note if I transcribe a previously uploaded video?

Absolutely not. When you transcribe a media file, UserBit creates a tab that allows you to switch between Transcription and notes. Your existing notes are preserved and untouched.
