Convert audio to text on Telegram and transcribe voice messages

In today’s guide, in fact, we are going to see how to automatically transcribe messages and voice notes received on Telegram.

It will only take a couple of clicks to convert any audio or voice message received on Telegram into text and, as anticipated, it will not be necessary to pay for any subscription or service. We will be able to do everything for FREE!

Without getting lost in small talk, let’s get started with the guide!

Transcribe Telegram Voice Messages – OFFICIAL Way 1

First of all, you should know that Telegram has recently introduced for all users, even for those who do not have a subscription, the ability to transcribe voice messages for free.

In this way, anyone can read in text form what has been received vocally on Telegramwithout paying for the subscription and without resorting to external bots.

We will finally be able to read the notes and voice messages received on Telegram without having to listen to them all, especially if they are very long or slow.

Okay, all very nice, but how do you transcribe Telegram voicemails?

Simple: simply tap on the →A icon next to the voice message to activate automatic transcription.

In a matter of moments, Telegram will take care of converting the audio message into text.

Simple, easy, fast and free! Telegram is always light years ahead of WhatsApp.

Important thing to keep in mind: users who use Telegram for free can only enjoy this feature for a maximum of 2 messages per week.

To have unlimited access to the transcripts, you need to subscribe to the paid subscription of Telegram.

Transcribe Telegram Voice Messages – Way 2 VIA BOT

Unfortunately, it seems that the first method I proposed to you is not yet available to many users, especially for those who do not have a paid subscription on Telegram.

In my case, for example, the ability to convert voice to text on Telegram has not yet appeared.

Fortunately, however, there are many other alternatives available to transcribe Telegram voice messages, all of which are obviously free.

The best, from my point of view, is represented by Transcriber_Bot.

This bot has tons of advantages:

  • It’s free
  • Supports tons of languages
  • Convert audio to text
  • Convert images to text

As you can easily guess, it’s much more powerful than the feature just introduced by Telegram!

But how do you use Transcriber_Bot?


  • start it
  • Click on /english if you want the voicemails to be transcribed and converted to Italian
  • at this point go to the chat where you received the voice or audio message on Telegram
  • Select the voicemail and forward it in the Transcriber_Bot chat (press and hold on the message and then click on the arrow that appears at the top)
  • The text message will be automatically transcribed by Transcriber_Bot in a truly perfect way

It’s as simple as that!


As already mentioned, then, the same bot is also able to transcribe verbatim sentences present in images (like OCR software). The method of use is similar to that seen for voice recordings.

In the case of images, however, we have a maximum daily limit of 10 transcripts.

Do you know of any other solutions?

If so, let me know using the comments at the end of the article.
