Quality: How accurate is your speech recognition algorithm?
This question is difficult to answer because quality depends on many factors:

Temi Tool / Software Features
Questions about synchronization?
Does Temi synchronize the draft transcript with the media? Yes, Temi’s online editor remains synchronized to your draft as you edit. As you click around, the audio/video will jump to that exact moment of the word you are editing. Likewise, when you play the media, a yellow marker will track the word spoken at that moment.
Do you have timestamps?
  • Yes. Temi has timestamps information for every spoken word it detects!
  • In the Temi tool, select any word to see the time it is spoken, highlight to see when a segment starts and ends.
  • All timestamps in the Temi tool are clickable to jump to the place in the media in which the phrase was spoken.
  • We are working on improving the output format of timestamps.
