Transcript creator OR Speech to text [closed]

I listen to a daily podcast that is about 4 hours long. I think it would be a cool project if I could come with some way to generate transcripts of it automatically. Is there any software that will "listen" to the mp3s and create text of what they are saying?

I'm pretty sure Dragon will let you do this. You might have trouble with the accuracy though.

One thing you could try (although not on a daily basis) is uploading the audio as a video to Youtube, then asking YouTube to transcribe the video, giving you English captions...can take up to 24 hours for YouTube to do this, however...The caption file is even downloadable and you can edit them yourself, so you could copy and paste the text to wherever you wanted...

"i'm using Dragon NaturalSpeaking for transcription. excellent software!

but it ain't free, Amazon offers the actual version 10 for $45, if you look around you'll get DNS9 even cheaper."

The problem with Dragon Naturally Speaking in a context like this is that you really wouldn't be able to go through the training process where it learns to accurately interpret the speech. It's not intended for this kind of use. Maybe the NSA has some software to do this sort of thing. :)
