How to Get a Perfect iPhone Voicemail Transcription

If you have really important phone calls and need to keep reliable records of them, it’s crucial to have a transcription method that works for you 100% of the time. As many know, iPhones have a built-in system that transcribes voicemails. While this system is usable for the casual user, the automated transcription can sometimes be a little finicky to use and leaves a lot to be desired. If you depend on keeping an accurate record of any iPhone voicemail transcription, here are some steps you can take.

How to Transcribe iPhone Voicemails in Four Steps

  • Download the GoTranscript Voice Recorder App

New voice recording technologies are incredibly easy to use and highly powerful. The GoTranscript voice recorder app is available for both iPhone and Android devices.

  • Record Your Voicemails

Now that you have the app, it’s as easy as pressing the big button in the middle to start recording! Hit that record button, and playback the voicemail that you need transcribed. After recording the iPhone voicemail using the app, follow a simple process to send the recording to GoTranscript service to have your voicemail transcribed.

  • Record Everything!

You don’t have to stop at just recording and transcribing voicemails. The voice recorder app from GoTranscript is a great tool to use for recording just about anything. Imagine being able to send a recording from a recent lecture and get every single word back in text form. No more aimless scrubbing through those audio files!

  • Send in Audio Files

Alternatively, if you’re not quite up to using the transcription app from GoTranscript, it’s just as easy to send in audio files that you’ve recorded previously (from any app or device), and have that transcribed. All iPhones come preloaded with the Voice Memo app, which is just as easy to use! Look below to find out the easy steps to upload your audio recording for transcription.

How to Upload Audio Files to Gotranscript From an iPhone

  • Use your recording app of choice (like Voice Memos) to record your lecture, meeting, or anything else
  • Use the share sheet function (the little square with the arrow pointing out the top) to send the audio file using email
  • Email the audio file to, and the team will gladly upload the audio file to your account for transcription processing

How to Forward Your iPhone Voicemail to Gotranscript

If you already have voicemail messages on your phone that you would like to have transcribed, it’s even easier to go through the process.

  • Go to your Phone app on your iPhone
  • Go to the Voicemail tab in the app, and press on the voicemail that you would like to share
  • You will see a share sheet (square with arrow) button at the top right, which you can press to send the selected voicemail to for processing

Why You Should Transcribe Your Voicemails

  • Make it easier to reference information from meetings or conversations

Whatever reason you might have for using iPhone voicemail transcription services, GoTranscript and their app are ready to serve you as a client and provide a flawless transcription of all audio and video files you send their way. Look no further for your transcription needs, and leave behind the days of forgetting who said what, or what exactly did the professor say about parabolas.
