    Are out there programs to make transcriptions
    of voice sound?

    I know that the inverse exists to read the screen
    to you.

    Thanks.

    There are services for voice to text. I believe google has one. These
    things are far from perfect - consider how CC on TV (especially on old
    movies) gets things messed up quite frequently.

    That is why you have fact checkers and copy people who review
    the transcription to make sure that "free" has not become "fruit" which
    may change the meaning of a reference to free people or beer. I read
    this in a novel where the copy checker should have caught it.

    Yes, it's like the translations errors made or the autocorrection of
    grammar. <- All these words are wrong except "Yes" <- Except "are".
    Stupidity versus laziness. <- only "versus" ok :-)

    Just for giggles, this video below shows what Google Translate did to
    Bohemian Rhapsody after translation from English to a couple of other
    languages and then back to English. A must-watch, but for the sake
    of your monitor and your keyboard, put down your beverage first. :p

    Some years ago I was trying Google's Spanish to English translation on
    some recipes and the results were hilarious.

    It translated Piña (Pineapple) as "fragmentation hand grenade." What a
    dessert that would have been. :-)

    It also translated papa (potato) into something funny. "Take two Popes
    and slice them..."

    There were even more blunders, but these are the ones that stuck in my
    mind. :-)

    Generally I find what they did extremly good. However one should
    refrain from the idea to produce an acceptable text without knowing
    ANYTHING of the target language.

    Is it really such a big deal if nonsense gets translated into some other kind of nonsense? ;-)

    Well, if you're going to call a prog-rock masterpiece like "Bohemian
    Rhapsody" nonsense, then I guess the issue is entirely moot.

    The music is great. The "lyrics" are nonsense. So's their other hit, "Killer Queen".
