I take a lot of memos by recoding my voice using my Android smartphone. The recordings can be a quick note, or a long dictation, so they vary a lot in size. Depending on the app I use, I the audio is saved as either a WAV or MP3 file.
What I want to do is take these voice memos and dictations ans convert them into text files.
I found this method that theoretically uses pavucontrol to pipe audio playback into Google Chrome's voice to text API, but I can't get it to work. I've followed the instructions and don't get any errors, I just don't see any text appear in the Chrome interface. In any case, it's not much better than holding my phone up to my laptop microphone. I was hoping for something where I wouldn't necessarily have to hear the audio as it was being converted to text, as I might do this with my laptop while I'm out at a coffee shop or something.
Ideally, there would be software where I could load a batch of sound files, and it would output a batch of text files, one for each audio file.
Does any software or method for this exist on Ubuntu?
