Live Transcribe & Sound Notifications is an application available for Android phones that allows for live transcription of conversations. Powered by Google's speech recognition technology, more than 70 languages and dialects are available within the app for real-time captioning. The app is free to download on Android devices operating with 5.0 Lollipop and up. To download the app, visit the Google Play Store on your device.

Comparable options for Apple devices include Transcribe Live, which immediately transcribes meetings, interviews, memos, lectures, and talks into text. Transcripts may be exported and edited within the app. The app is free of charge for the first 15 minutes of transcription. Users can then purchase a monthly subscription or a one-time fee for additional transcription time. To download the app, visit the Apple App Store.
