How to Transcribe iPhone Voicemails
When you have a really important voicemail, Apple’s transcription isn’t always the most accurate or reliable tool to turn your iPhone voicemail recording to text.
However, you can easily transcribe the voicemail messages on your iPhone with the Rev voice recorder app.
To start transcribing your voicemails 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 voicemail recording on your phone
Open the Phone app on your iPhone and go to the Voicemails tab at the bottom right. Locate and tap on the voicemail you want to transcribe.
3. Copy the voicemail recording to the Rev app
Click the share button on the selected voicemail.
In your share to app options, find and tap “Copy to Recorder.”
4. Transcribe the recording in Rev Voice Recorder
Once you’ve copied the voicemail recording file to the Rev Voice Recorder app, you’re now ready to submit the recording for transcription with Rev.
Before you submit your order, you can view the recording to ensure you’re using the right recording.
When you’re ready to transcribe, click the transcribe button.
The checkout window will appear where you can confirm the transcription order details and include additional options like timestamps and speaker names.

You will see your transcript appear in the Rev Voice Recorder app once finished. From there, you can view the transcript and additionally share to other apps like Google Drive or Slack.
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.
