What is Lite Mode eligible?

What is Standard vs Enhanced?

We offer two proprietary transcription models available to all customers:

  • Standard - great for users and transcripts where speed is a priority, with accuracy trade-offs as a result.

  • Enhanced - when unbeatable accuracy is a must-have, our Enhanced model provides best-in-class accuracy across all of our languages.

Different models can be used for different jobs, so can be tailored for the specific needs of the task.
