Simon Says AI Transcription Tools for DaVinci Resolve

Simon Says, an AI-based transcription specialized company for video professionals, just announced that they’re now the first company to support AI transcription inside DaVinci Resolve.

Simon Says was already compatible with various other NLEs, including Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, and now DaVinci Resolve (both Free and Studio versions).

How Does It Work?

First, you have to download and install the Simon Says Transcription app, which is on the Apple Store. Next, you’ll have to install a Python Script and follow the nice tutorial on Simon Says’ website.

Once you’re up and running, you can select the clips to import and transcribe. According to the company:

Add speaker labels, bookmark and make any edits in the nifty video-transcript editor. Collaborate with your team to identify the key soundbites and then export back into Resolve, receiving ranged transcript markers, color coded to delineate speakers, that attach back to the original clips. Editing just got a whole lot more efficient – versus scrubbing through audio and switching back to the edit list in another program.

Captions, translations

Another great thing is that you can caption your video edits directly inside Resolve and even translate your subtitles to over 100 supported languages.

Price and Availability

Simon Says is a pay-as-you-go service with prices around $15 per hour of footage transcripted. A subscription model is also available with a lower cost per hour, but there is a monthly or annual fee.

Finally, you can sign up to Simon Says and get free credits to test it and see if you like it. For more information, please visit the company’s website here.
