App for Mac Transcribes Voice Notes: Find out what audio messages mean when you can’t hear them!
A group of developers has solved one of the main problems with listening to voice notes. And it is none other than the curious who surround us. In this way, ‘Scusi’ for macOS transcribes audio messages that we don’t want to read.
According to a 9to5mac article, Jordi Bruin and Hidde van der Ploeg’s app, Scusi works in a very simple and impressive way. And it’s available for all Macs starting with macOS Monterey.

To use Scusi, users only need to drag and drop any iMessage voice memo into the app to transcribe it and the result will appear on the side of the app with the wording.
