Why convert M4A to text?

Do you use an Apple device, such as an iPhone, iPad or a Mac computer, or have files shared from someone who does? Or have you downloaded content from the Apple iTunes Store? If so, then you're bound to have some M4A audio files. And while M4A is a common and useful audio format, providing quality sound recordings without huge file sizes, there are times when a written transcript of the contents is just more useful. With a typed document it's easy to add notes or comments, which can be helpful when you're reviewing an interview or following a lecture or training talk. Transcriptions of audio content like podcasts also make content more accessible to those with a hearing impairment, and make it easy for you to repurpose your podcast content for your blog or social media channels

Although converting audio to text used to mean painstakingly typing out the information as you repeatedly played and rewound the audio file, our M4A-to-text conversion tool now streamlines that process for you. Just upload your M4A file and within a few moments you'll be able to download a full transcription of the speech in a handy text document. You can now quickly add your voice memos to your to-do list, store searchable versions of your customer calls, and share your dictated meeting notes with your team. Easy peasy!


A new homepage, the ability to convert files in real time, and the addition of a Zamzar API are just some of the things we've been working on recently!
