PodInbox now Auto Transcribes New Audio Messages From Your Podcast Fans
Now, when fans record an audio message on your podcast fan page, you’ll get that message transcribed automatically…for free!
That’s right, we’re providing audio transcriptions for free!
This works a bit like visual voicemail, and here’s how it looks like…
There’s nothing you need to do to turn this on…as this new feature is toggled on by default.
Also, if you’re using our embeddable widget on your podcast website, you’ll also get that message transcription in your PodInbox dashboard and in your notification email.
If for some reason you’d like to hide your transcriptions on your fan page…just go do your dashboard, edit your inbox, and toggle off “Show transcriptions”.
We’re still calling this new feature “beta”, as we’re continually working on the accuracy and speed of these transcriptions.
Rarely, some new messages don’t get auto-transcribed when submitted. Don’t worry. You can always manually trigger the transcription with the “transcribe” link inside every untranscribed message.
Another useful aspect of this new feature is we now include the transcription in your notification email whenever you receive a new audio message. It’s just a convenient way for you to read the audio message, before listening to it on PodInbox.
We hope you enjoy this new feature! It’s just another way we’re making fan engagement a bit easier and more sustainable.
