NEW! We are happy to present Bed Word, a new transcription service that uses industry-modern models for the best possible transcription quality. Users have the option to choose between DARLA's free in-house ASR model, or set up a paid Deepgram account for Bed Word. (DARLA is a completely free service, but Bed Word uses a third-party company called Deepgram that has its own fee. We do not make any money from this tool.)
