What is the iPhone App?
Trint’s iPhone app merges Trint’s state of the art transcription technology with a portable recorder. Have you ever wanted to record a conversation and have it transcribed, all without logging into your computer?
Now you can.
What can I do with it?
The iPhone App allows you to:
1) Record Audio
2) Save those recordings
3) Upload audio files from your iPhone to Trint for transcription
Where can I download it?
In the App Store.
What if I don’t have a Trint account?
No problem, just download the iPhone App, go to the ‘Account’ screen and click on "Sign up". This will take you right to the Trint website to register for a free account.
What if I do have a Trint account?
Great news, just go to the Account page and click on the big yellow Log in button.
How do I make a recording?
Click on the red button at the bottom of the screen to start recording automatically (this will take you to a new screen).
This screen has several features to help you get the most out of your recordings.
Pause and unpause the recording process at any time by pressing the red button.
Pressing the ‘Play’ icon lets you listen to the recording from the beginning.
Once finished click on ‘Save’ in the top right corner of the screen.
The system will then prompt you to name your recording. When ready, press “Save.”
The recording will now be saved.
You’ll then be able to access it from the Recordings screen at any point. Click on the recording to view details.
Can I upload other audio files from my iPhone?
Yes, you can.
Open your audio file and click "Send To".
From here, click ‘Copy to Trint’ to send the audio file to your mobile app. You can also click on ‘Send to Trint’ to have it go straight to the web app.
TIP: If you can’t see ‘Copy to Trint’ or ‘Send to Trint’ on the bar, you’ll need to scroll all the way to the right and click on ‘More’. This will open up the full list of apps that you can have active. Activate them by moving their respective sliders to the right, and they’ll appear on your bar.
How do I transcribe my files?
Once you have your audio files on your Recordings page, getting them transcribed is easy. Simply click on your recording to open up the Details page, and then click again on “Upload & Transcribe.”
This will take you to our audio quality check. After you’ve made sure your audio meets the criteria, click ‘Next’ to continue the process.
Now you’ll be able to pick the language algorithm you’d like to use for your transcription. Click “Confirm” once you’ve decided and the transcription process will begin automatically.
The resulting transcription will appear in a text-only format.
How do I know when the transcription is ready?
You can check the status of your transcription from both the Recordings page and the Details page. On both pages you should see a green or yellow dot followed by the current status: Uploading, Uploaded, Transcribing, or Transcribed.
The app will notify you once the transcription is complete, but you will also receive an e-mail notification, just as you would were you to use our web app.
How long will it take?
On average, the transcription time is less than the length of the file itself. If your file is taking longer than expected, you may need to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I upload video files?
Video files are currently not supported by our mobile app. You’ll have to use the web app instead.
Where are all my files?
The iPhone app does not synchronize with the web app. Think of them as separate accounts.
