WIPO Speech to Text

WIPO Speech to Text is a powerful transcription tool which automatically converts audio and video content into text using artificial intelligence. It was specifically designed for international meetings and conferences. Once trained in a specific subject area, it out-performs other general purpose transcription tools.

The software was originally created and deployed to help transcribe official WIPO meetings and can be customized for other organisations worldwide.
