Simon Says' on-premise AI transcription features:

• Runs on Macs and PCs
• Handles virtually all media file types and codecs

• Supports timecode-based / frame-accurate transcription for video production environments

Simon Says started as a cloud-based transcription website and applications and grew to be the leading one with our suite of products and features. Yet many customers came to us saying they wanted to use it but couldn't because of the general risks of the cloud. They have sensitive projects and/or clients with strict compliance requirements (such as HIPAA, TPN, MPAA, SOC 2, CDSA) and only an on-premise transcription product would suffice. We built Simon Says on-premise AI for all those who work with highly-sensitive content.
