SpeedScriber - A Revolution In Video Transcription For Editors
Overview: SpeedScriber is an automatic video transcription app created for professional video editors by Digital Heaven.
SpeedScriber can be used as a standalone app or it can be integrated with Premiere, FCPx, and Avid. SpeedScriber is a free desktop app, combined with an online account where the user buys minutes and manages their account. Users pay for transcription via the number of minutes of video footage they transcribe.
SpeedScriber uses machine learning to create transcripts significantly faster than real time (a 60 minute video takes 10 minutes to process) but with human like accuracy.
EditStock founder Misha Tenenbaum has been beta testing the app since October and offered this presentation at the June 28th, 2017 LA Creative Pro User Group (LACPUG) meeting.

Creating a transcription using SpeedScriber is about as simple as it gets. Simply add a clip to the left window and hit transcribe. A small audio file will be uploaded to to SpeedScriber's server where the transcription is done at many times real time speed.
SpeedScriber and Premiere
SpeedScriber integrates with Premiere's metadata / speech window. In order to do this you'll need to download the SpeedScriber panel extension. Open the panel and import the clip(s) you wish to see transcripts for from SpeedScriber. Once the transcription is paired to the clip anyone sharing the clip's media will have access to the transcript!
SpeedScriber and FCPx Integration
SpeedScriber Integrates with FCPx via the "round-tripping" of XML files. The reason you'd want to do this is because FCPx has terrific audio syncing features. Round-tripping allows you to create transcripts from linked files in FCPx without the need to export a "proxy" file to bring into SpeedScriber. Once a transcription is made it can be sent back to FCPx where keywords and notes will be applied to the synced clip.
