System for Speech Transcription and Post-Editing in Microsoft Word

Askars Salimbajevs, Indra Ikauniece


In this demonstration paper, we introduce a transcription service that can be used for transcription of different meetings, sessions etc. The service performs speaker diarization, automatic speech recognition, punctuation restoration and produces human-readable transcripts as special Microsoft Word documents that have audio and word alignments embedded. Thereby, a widely-used word processor is transformed into a transcription post-editing tool. Currently, Latvian and Lithuanian languages are supported, but other languages can be easily added.
