audio recording sample rate - transcribing

Recommended Posts

First off, I'm a daily user. Primarily to record what I would call a "voice journal" and I must say I love your project. It really has changed my life and how I work.

Now... it's to the point where I want to transcribe most of my voice journals, into editable text, for blogging purposes. A built in feature for this would be AMAZING, but that withstanding here's a simple idea.

I know you are recording audio at 8000 Hz to keep file size down, totally get it! But, if this was a user setting, I'd be able to record my files at say... 11025 Hz (the minimum sampling rate supported by transpription software such as MacSpeech Scribe) and not have to do a ton of audio conversion in programs such as Audacity just to get them loaded into the transcription software.

Thanks gang, nice work!

Any update on this guys?  I'm not overly encouraged since this post was 2 years ago. I've got almost the exact same scenario as Jared, and cannot transcribe any of my audio files into Dictate (just upgraded to v4).  A user setting (unless I'm missing something, and there is a way to do it) is needed!


Update - BTW - since I just saw that this was posted under IOS, everything else applies, but I was referring to Evernote OSX (I also use IOS, and know you added the High/Low quality audio - thank you, love it!). What about OSX?  Any way to do this?
