Simon Says

Simon Says swiftly and accurately turns your media files into the written form with advanced artificial intelligence — in minutes.

And they do this in a way that the transcript is extremely flexible, as you need it: bookmark and discuss the transcript with production teammates on the site. Cut from it as markers right in your NLE. Or export it to a Word doc, subtitles, and your video editing application.

Oh! Did they tell you they support 100 languages covering almost the entire planet?

So you focus on capturing the best interviews, getting the perfect recording, and cutting that creative video that deeply engages your audience upon distribution. In any language.

Shamir Allibhai will handle the tedious so your time is freed to focus on more important work.

Welcome to a better way to work. Welcome to Simon Says.
