How to Transcribe iPhone Voice Memos
The voice memo app on an iPhone is a great tool for quick audio recordings with decent quality. While Apple’s Voice Memo app works well for recordings in a pinch, it’s not as easy to order transcriptions as you can straight from the Rev voice recorder app.
However, you can easily transcribe the voice memo recordings with Rev on your iPhone.
To start transcribing your voice memos with Rev, follow these steps:
1. Download the Rev Voice Recorder App
Download the Rev Voice Recorder app on your iPhone from the App Store or by clicking the button below.
2. Find the voice memo on your phone
Open the Voice Memo app on your iPhone. Locate and tap on the voice memo you want to transcribe.
3. Copy the voice memo to the Rev Voice Recorder app

4. Transcribe the voice memo recording in Rev Voice Recorder
Once you’ve copied the voice memo file to the Rev Voice Recorder app, you’re now ready to submit the recording for transcription.
Before you submit your order, you can view the recording to ensure you’re using the right voice memo.
When you’re ready to transcribe, click the transcribe button.

There are two main types of transcriptions, verbatim and non-verbatim. A verbatim transcript captures every single word from an audio file in text, exactly the same way those words were originally spoken.
