FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What is transcription process?
Each audio file is tested, transcoded, and then transcribed using the Whisper model from the OpenAI API.
How long does it take to get a transcript?

What are the maximum file size for transcription?

What is the maximum duration you can transcribe?

We currently have a file size limit of 20MB. Given that most voice messages are encoded with a constant bitrate and a single channel (mono, no stereo), we can calculate the maximum duration of a file using the following equation:

Duration ( seconds ) = File Size ( bits ) Bitrate ( bits/second )

Applying this equation to our 20MB limit and a bitrate of 64 kbps (commonly used by the iPhone recorder app), we arrive at a maximum duration of approximately 43 minutes and 41 seconds. To easily calculate durations for different file sizes and bitrates, you can use our audio duration calculator.
