Revolutionize Your Study Sessions with Algor Education's Automatic Transcription Tool
Taking down every single concept explained by a professor during a lecture is practically impossible. That's why many students, often driven by the fear of overlooking important details, choose to record lectures to listen to and transcribe them later. However, manually transcribing hours and hours of audio is not only a rather tedious and tiring process, but it also takes away precious time from study sessions. In short: it's a waste of time that can be easily avoided.
We at Algor Education have decided to find a solution to this problem: our learning platform now features automatic transcription from audio/video to text! This is a brand new tool that, thanks to Artificial Intelligence, will allow you to convert an audio or video file - whether it's in Italian, English, Spanish, French, or German - into written text, saving you time and energy. This way, you no longer have to worry about your notes, and you can focus more on the lectures!

A step-by-step guide to purchasing credits and getting started
After logging in, all you need to do is locate the "Automatic Transcriptions" button within your Personal Area.
To take advantage of Algor's new feature, you will need to purchase the credit suitable for transcribing your audio or video.
The cost per hour of audio or video is €0.99. Click on the “Purchase Credit” button at the top right and select the number of hours you want to transcribe. To do this, scroll with the cursor the icon with the Algor symbol, or type the figure directly into the appropriate box; then select the “Proceed to Payment” button and follow the instructions. At the end of the operation, you will be redirected to the transcription page.
Your credit will be updated, and you can check its status on the top bar, next to the "Purchase Credit" button.
A step-by-step guide for uploading and transcribing filesAt this point, you can proceed with the upload of the audio or video file in your possession that you wish to convert to text. To do this, click on the "Upload file" button that you will find on the left side of the screen and select the file saved on your device.
Attention! When uploading the file, you will need to consider two factors: the size and format of the audio or video.
● the maximum size for each file is 0.5 GB.
● the supported formats of the platform are: mpeg, mp3, wav, webm, m4a, mpga, mp4. If your file format is not among these, you can convert it to one of the accepted formats with an online converter.
Additionally, you will need to ensure that the file duration does not exceed the credit in your possession. In any case, you can always return to the purchase page and increase the hours at your disposal.
Once you have selected the file, choose the language of the audio or video and click on "Start transcription". When the transcription process is complete and your text is ready, you will receive a notification email from our team containing the link that will allow you to access the content. To view the text transcribed by Artificial Intelligence, click on the "View transcription" button that you will find on the right side of the page, in the area that encloses and organizes all the uploaded files.
