Do you know any software that does this best? I hope to do fewer edits on the file after converting the audio to text. Others I've encountered produce too many typos that I always had to review all of them. Doing that is time-consuming, so I got curious if there'd be better software or a website.

Some voice recognition software is still kind of dicey like that, especially the open-source flavors. The oldest commercial software that became popular was Dragon Dictate, now known as Dragon NaturallySpeaking. It's pretty good, and there are others too. As I mentioned earlier, you can also get freely available open-source code, but that takes a lot more to get going. It doesn't sound to me like you want to fiddle much, so you probably want one of the proprietary "shrink wrapped" packages that you can buy.

Thanks, Wayne! Yeah, I wouldn't want to spend a lot. I'll look into your suggestion because it's my first time hearing about it. The best freely available software is something I'll try to use.

I've used Dragon, and it does the job, but I'll warn you that you have to spend a long time "training" the software to understand you correctly.
