"Free" Transcription
#1
Transcription, either by speaking into a microphone or uploading an audio file, is available for users of Office 365 through Word online. A personal account is about $7 a month or $70 a year. 

Microphone transcription is unlimited but transcriptions from an audio file are limited to 5 hours a month.

After doing a lot of testing with this, it works pretty well. You wind up with two pieces of content, written and audio, for different needs of your audience.  

The "free" part comes into play when you compare the service to a human transcription service which may charge $1 or more per minute. Human type is higher quality, but the automated type + a little editing is a good way to get started.

Have you tried Otter.ai? It's really good and the free level gives you 600 minutes a month, which = 10 hours a month. This is my refer a friend link...I'm not sure if you get anything extra for using it, but I get a 1 month free upgrade to the Pro Lite level.

You bring up a great point that it can be really efficient to be able to turn speech to text....and text to speech, to use content in a variety of media.
Get and spend Cow Chips just for being a Pheeds Phorum member...
(Never let anyone tell you that you shouldn't spend them all in one place.)
