How does the Banafo
speech-to-text API work?

Voice to text is a complicate matter and comes in many flavours. This flow helps you quickly understand how your application and our API can work together to unlock high quality transcripts for your users.

workflow
Your application
          

Your software works with voice recordings. Or your users can upload audio files within your application.

Secure connection
          

To protect the privacy of your users, the audio files and transcripts are exchanged over a secure connection.

Banafo PRO account
          

All recordings in your PRO Banafo account are protected from access by third parties. You can either keep the audio files, or have them automatically deleted when the transcript is ready.

Stable Banafo asr servers
          

Unlike many other transcription services, we developed, trained and constantly improve our own AI speech-to-text engine. We don’t rely on third party transcription services.The transcripts are generated on our servers, so you don’t need to invest in an expensive ICT infrastructure.

Integrate high-quality transcripts
in your app

We deliberately focused on the quality of transcripts over a pile of fancy features you probably don’t need, or that would require months of hard work to adapt your app.
