I benchmarked six apps and Speechmatics was right up there with Youtube subtitling for accuracy.

Pros: It's the most accurate speech recognition software I've found, that is also usable. Youtube subtitling has the edge sometimes, but Youtube is also a real palaver to use - you have to make a video to start with and download as .srt file. Speechmatics just does it all for you and spits out a pdf.
Cons: I'd prefer a Word doc for output because I can't edit the PDF! It also doesn;t tell you when the transcription is completed, you have to manually refresh the page.
Overall: Speed, accuracy, saves me hours and hours of time doing audio transcription by hand and ear.
