Simplify turning digital recordings from legal proceedings, law enforcement incidents, insurance claims, corporate meetings and other reporting quickly become valuable text documents.

Automatic Transcription with FirstDraft™

FirstDraft, powered by aiAssist™, quickly converts audio files to text with up to 95% accuracy to provide access to interviews, testimonies, recorded calls and dictations in a timely, cost-effective manner when needed. Accuracy is dependent on audio quality; additional post-processing, custom language models and dictionaries can return even better results.  

FirstDraft delivers the most comprehensive end-to-end workflow for single and multi-speaker environments where time and accuracy count.  

With FirstDraft, the file is routed to an industry-specific, speech-to-text engine, powered by aiAssist, for quick delivery of a high-quality, editable document. Once the draft transcripts are generated, they can be securely accessed anywhere, which maximizes your efficiency to focus on the tasks that matter most.
