    • I just tried out a sample, and the recording came back almost instantly, letter perfect. I plan to write some articles and will be subscribing to the service. The transcription comes in as text; I pasted it into a word file and can easily edit it. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with Cockatoo!

    • Cockatoo has made my life as a documentary video producer much easier because I no longer have to transcribe interviews by hand. Thanks!

    • The transcription was very good indeed! As I am disabled, there is often a big pause in speaking my thoughts. Cockatoo coped with those very well.

    • I used to do transcriptions the old way many years ago. It was quite time consuming. Later I used real time transcribing with my recordings, which was helpful. This newer AI tool is way more accurate than transcribing software I used before, did quite well with different accents in Turkish, and did the job quite fast, highly recommended.

    • Cockatoo works like magic! 99% accuracy and it switches languages, even though you choose one before you transcribe. I love that they don't make any money on ads. Upload -> Transcribe -> Download and repeat!

    • The accuracy (including various accents, including strong accents) and unlimited transcripts is what makes my heart sing
