How to Transcribe Voicemails on iPhone

Are you tired of listening to long, tedious voicemails on your iPhone? Do you wish there was a way to quickly and easily transcribe them into text so you can read them at your convenience? Well, you're in luck! In this post, we'll show you how to transcribe voicemails on your iPhone using a few different methods.

Use Apple's Built-in Transcription Feature

One of the easiest ways to transcribe voicemails on your iPhone is to use Apple's built-in transcription feature. This feature is available on all iPhone models running iOS 14 or higher, and it's super simple to use. Here's how:

  1. Open the Phone app and go to your voicemail inbox.

  2. Select the voicemail you want to transcribe.

  3. Tap the "Transcribe" button at the bottom of the screen.

Your iPhone will automatically transcribe the voicemail and display the transcription in a pop-up window. From there, you can read the transcription or tap the "Share" button to send it to someone else.

Use a Third-Party Transcription App

If you're running an older version of iOS or you just want more options for transcribing voicemails, you can use a third-party transcription app. There are several good options available on the App Store, including:

  • Otter.ai: This app uses artificial intelligence to transcribe your voicemails (and other audio recordings) in real-time. It's fast, accurate, and has a lot of useful features, including the ability to highlight and search for specific words within your transcriptions.

  • Rev: This app is another great option for transcribing voicemails. It uses a network of professional transcribers to produce high-quality transcriptions, and it has a lot of useful features, including the ability to transcribe multiple languages and add timestamps to your transcriptions.

Use a Desktop Transcription Software

If you prefer to transcribe your voicemails on your computer, you can use a desktop transcription software like Express Scribe or oTranscribe. These programs allow you to play back your voicemails (using a foot pedal or keyboard shortcuts) and type out the transcription as you go. They're great for transcribing long voicemails or if you prefer to work on a larger screen.

Use a Voice-to-Text Keyboard

If you're comfortable typing out your voicemails by hand, you can use a voice-to-text keyboard like Gboard or SwiftKey. These keyboards use artificial intelligence to transcribe your spoken words into text as you speak, making it easy to quickly transcribe your voicemails without having to type everything out manually.

Setting Up Transcription

Before you can transcribe voicemails, you'll need to make sure transcription is enabled on your iPhone. Here's how to do it:

  1. Go to the "Settings" app on your iPhone.

  2. Tap on "Phone".

  3. Tap on "Transcription".

  4. Toggle the switch next to "Transcription" to the "On" position.

Transcribing Voicemails

Once transcription is set up, you can transcribe any voicemail by following these steps:

  1. Go to the "Phone" app on your iPhone.

  2. Tap on the "Voicemail" tab.

  3. Select the voicemail you want to transcribe.

  4. Tap on the "Transcribe" button.

Reading the Transcription

After a few seconds, the transcription of the voicemail will appear on the screen. You can scroll through the transcription to read the entire message.

Editing the Transcription

If you notice any mistakes in the transcription, you can edit it by tapping on the text and making the necessary changes.

Saving the Transcription

Once you're happy with the transcription, you can save it by tapping on the "Save" button. The transcription will be saved to your iPhone, and you can access it anytime from the "Voicemail" tab.

Sharing the Transcription

If you want to share the transcription with someone, you can do so by tapping on the "Share" button. This will bring up the "Share" menu, where you can choose how you want to share the transcription (e.g., via text message, email, etc.).

Deleting the Transcription

If you no longer need the transcription, you can delete it by tapping on the "Delete" button. This will remove the transcription from your iPhone.

Disabling Transcription

If you no longer want to use transcription, you can disable it by following the steps in the "Setting Up Transcription" section, but toggling the switch to the "Off" position.
