Is there a program, software or anything downloadable that can automatically transcribe audio into text? I can see a need for this with deaf people, but from what I understand there are only transcribing services that do this.

Hi, I personally worked for a transcribing company and can honestly say that you get better results if a human is transcribing. However, you should check out this article, https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/225584

I tried transcribing and realized it wasn't my forte. Do you mean that these voice conversion apps can miss a word or two hence not 100% accurate?

I tried using Dragon with my lecture notes, but it has to be trained to understand a person's voice. It gets similar words mixed up or just skips ones it doesn't detect or have in the dictionary, so I don't use it any more.

I have seen good computerized transcribing, and I have seen bad computerized transcribing. On Youtube, auto English subtitles are often very wrong and sometimes amusing to read. However, I have seen on iOS, they have some voicemails transcribed for you, and those are more accurate. I was impressed. However, in terms of accessing this technology, I am not aware of it.
