I personally love their app, because when I'm driving or waiting, I can simply push the record button, speak to my phone for 5-10 minutes and then send in my recording and pay, and often times within a few hours I can have a blog post that just needs a bit of formatting and tweaks and then it's ready to publish!
Here's the update they just sent me:
"We Were Out!
So yeah, what's up? Anything important happen while we were gone?
You may have noticed we've been remarkably silent here in the Rev Email Dept. Well, as it turns out, we had a little Email-let! She joined the Marketing Department a touch early at 6 pounds, 13 ounces. She's healthy and happy. We're staying inside. It's been pretty amazing. And terrifying. But mostly amazing.
Now that we're back, we have to say first that we missed you. All 500,000+ of you. That's right, you Marilyn K. from Virginia Beach, and you Marcus L. from Quebec City! And yes even you, You!
So look. We're not doctors. We're not scientists. I failed high school biology. We have no experience whatsoever in the medical field. Well, actually one of the guys in marketing, Tommy, is dating a nurse, but that's about it. And even then, he says he's not "sure" how "seriously" he's ready to "commit" to "something long-term."
Anyway, as the COVID-19 crisis continues into its 978th week, we here at Rev recognize there's not a lot we can do to help... on the medical front. But where we can help as a speech-to-text company — no, as The World's Best Transcription-Slash-Caption Company?
For one, we've been diverting resources to transcribing coronavirus-related news conferences and more. We have an ever-growing database, totally free right. No more paywalls for important info!
For two, we're working with video-conferencing giant Zoom to provide free live captioning services for all K-12 students who have now been thrust into learning from home. As a parent now, I can tell you how distracting it can be for a kid to try to learn at home, even if they're 6 weeks old! If you know a teacher who could use free live captioning, (and they wouldn't mind being a part of our beta) let us know by replying to this email.
And finally, three, we're encouraging Tommy to realize what he's got before it's gone. Frankly, Cynthia is the best person he's ever dated. She's the complete package!
But seriously everybody, please stay safe out there. While we aim to do our (very small) part, we also want to be particularly vocal in our thanks for all those on the front lines. So to all the first responders, emergency personnel, essential workforce, and more: Words truly can't express our appreciation. But for now, words are... well, they're sorta our thing.
We'll do our best to help, in every way we can."
