hi all,

i face many problems when i transcribe a video or audio.

sometimes the voice is not clear, sometimes too low i can't hear it, sometimes tiny parts of the audio sound robotic and have no idea what was said.

i am working on a transcription homework at the moment and I am facing all sorts of problems.

can anyone help out, or give me links that can help with problems like these and what to use in square brackets.

many thnx to all
