If the mp3 files are an instrumental, what language would you like the result to be in?

I can't even imagine any software that will convert an analog music file into text! I also can't imagine what you'd expect to be in the text file.

Piece of cake (I'm not sure this will be of much use.)

This is the first few lines of an MP3, opened with Notepad):

What key is that in? I have wireless speakers here, and I'm not sure if I am hearing Bing as well as if I had wired speakers.

Say the mp3 was a recording of a meeting. Talking only, not singing or what ever. Maybe the guy needs a transcription of the meeting. So some sort of voice recognition thing (same concept as ocr, except for talking).

I am just speaking hypothetically Just remember a few years ago I had hours of interviews saved as mp3's which I had to then painstakingly listen to and type up for my research project. At the time I remember thinking it would be pretty cool if such a thing existed.

Actually, if Cara's guess is right and what you want mandeep is essentially a transcription, something like Dragon NaturallySpeaking might be able to work for you if you played the mp3 for it - but only in a limited sense, for it has to be trained to vocal nuances, and multiple speakers will muddle the results. If the mp3s are all, of, say a professor you are going to the classes of, or are your own notes to yourself, the odds of it working get better - especially if it is you, for you can train the program first, then play the mp3s.

Actually, I always thought it was vocal mp3 files that Mandeep was talking about. But since s/he was never very clear, and never got back to us to clarify, I allowed my humor to show through (such as it is) and purposefully bend the direction of where this headed. It was all preposterous to even consider the conversion of songs to lyrics. But it was all in fun.

Mandeep, if you are reading any of this, you really ought to consider coming back with some more detail. Otherwise ... who knows where else we are going to drag this topic (all in fun, of course).
