First time using ScriptMe Lite

Before we start, we wanted to thank you for downloading ScriptMe Lite.

If, for some reason, you haven’t downloaded it yet, you can do it directly from our website at the following link.

Once you download the desktop application for Windows or macOS and have it installed, you are ready to transcribe as many files as you want without limits*.

*Up to 5 minutes are available in the free version.


Before you start transcribing, we suggest that you download the “medium-multilingual” engine and choose it when you transcribe to ensure you get a good enough result from the transcription. ( see the Application settings part in this page)
