Enablr, Take A Note Of That!

Posted by: Olga Kharif on May 2, 2006

I just found out about a cool new site called If you make podcasts, you might want to check it out. The site, essentially, offers to transcribe your podcast, at a rate of $1 a minute, so that people who haven’t had a chance to listen to it can access your talk in a different, written format.

All you need to do is enter the url where your MP3 file is located, an e-mail address for your transcript to be sent to, and the length of your podcast. The site, which is in Beta, says it transcribes podcasts in three business days. And the service lets podcast makers to put virtual tip jars on their sites, so listeners can contribute money toward transcription services. Is this cool or what?

Soon, the site will even offer a service called Transcribr Pro, which will continuously monitor your Web site and transcribe your podcasts as soon as they are published.

Thanks for the kind words. Just to clarify one thing - Transcribr Pro is currently available for the asking, and we're already providing the service to a couple of clients: what's coming soon is simply the online signup for that service.

I checked out the site and it is nicely done and all that, but is it really that much different than the companies and individuals in India that can do this for far less? It wouldn't surprise me if Enablr were outsourcing its own transcription to India. Of course, it would probably be nice to have Enablr as the responsible and convenient middleperson, but are they anything more than this?
