Product Usage FAQ


Is there a limit to how much I can use the application each month?

As a user you most likely will never see a limit. If the system is being used in a non-intended way you may see a warning once you pass 1000 minutes and be required to purchase another subscription to continue recording


Is there a limit to how long I can record?

The maximum recording time is 30 minutes. The recording will stop when this time limit is reached.


How many installs of Audiate can I have at one time?

You may install Audiate on two computers as long as; 1.) you are signed in wiht your own subscription/account, 2.) you are signed in to only one instance of Audiate at a time.


Can I access my Audiate projects offline?

You can access your Audiate project while offline for up to 24 hours since your last connection, however, you will be unable to record without an active internet connection.


What happens to my projects if I cancel my subscription?

Nothing will happen to your projects since all of their data is stored on your machine. However, you will be unable to open the projects without an active subscription. If you are planning to cancel your subscription, export your projects as WAV files, and you will be able to open them in any application that can use a WAV file.


Can I access my old projects if I restart my subscription?

Yes, your projects are stored on your machine, so as long as you do not remove them. You can load and edit them once you have an active subscription.


How long does it take to get a transcribed recording back for editing?

This is mostly dependent on the length of your audio and the speed of your internet connection, but transcription should usually be complete in minutes or less.


My transcriptions seem really inaccurate, am I doing something wrong?

No, while the service will naturally improve over time, the transcription will most likely not be 100% accurate. You can help improve the accuracy of the transcription by speaking slowly and clearly. You can fix mistakes in the transcription if accuracy is important to you, but editing should still be easy even when the words don’t match exactly.  


Does TechSmith have access to my recordings?

No. TechSmith never has access to any audio you’ve recorded.


What does IBM do with my audio?

IBM processes your audio and sends back a transcription. The audio is destroyed at the end of each day, and no personal information is used or sold at any point.
