What do you like best?

It’s great for the price but for people working with developers this software may be an expense avoided. I’ve used Google speech to text which also works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are more features using the Google software, and there’s more accuracy as well. This software was certainly helpful but I’ve had more success with Google. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It’s great to use when playing a video to transcribe quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It’s good for converting and translating speech, especially when it comes to video transcription which is a big part of my role. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Their API is very simple to use and their results are fantastic. They provide webhooks for completed jobs and their real-time transcription feature is very useful for allowing data entry on mobile devices without the need for lots and lots of typing. I very much look forward to continuing to take advantage of this company's great product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is really nothing that I dislike about their service. It could be nice to see the ability to submit videos for speech to text processing, but I don't consider it a downside because it's so simple to create audio files from the videos in our cloud and submit those. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I will absolutely keep using AssemblyAI for my STT needs. Definitely give these guys a try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I've tested many stt api's (Google/AWS/IBM) to transcribe audio/video files and AssemblyAI consistently wins on accuracy (lowest WER on our audio files).

They also worked with us to get pricing much lower than other api's, and cut our bill from AWS by 50%. Highly recommend for other devs looking for a really simple api/high accuracy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Along with the rest of the speech recognition industry, there is still a ways to go to get to human level accuracy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accurate transcription of phone calls and recordings and video interviews. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Solid transcription accuracy (we tested a number of competitors and they were the best) with great customer service. Dylan and team go above and beyond. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This isn't specific to Assembly AI, but transcription accuracy in general (especially with the audio quality of phone calls) can be hit or miss. It just comes with the territory. However, we have been really impressed with how frequently Assembly AI pushes accuracy updates to its models. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Assembly AI transcribes our customers phone calls. Without a solid and reliable ASR vendor, we don't have a product to sell. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
