For anyone with looming deadlines, I highly recommend this app for any transcriptions needed. You won’t be disappointed in its utility or in the customer service you’ll receive from the Rev team," says Tony Sinanis, Principal, Cantiague Elementary School and early adopter of the Rev Voice Recorder.
