Is there any free online audio to text conversion tools or software that gives 100% accuracy on clear audio recordings?

    Although,100 % error free cannot be achieved only from the automated system itself unless and until human being interferes.This can be done using VoiceBase service -

    It's very challenging for software to handle a sentence like:
    "I'm meeting Desmond Tutu at twenty to two will you come too?"

    There is a raft of techniques aimed at the problem, looking at sentence structure and databases of proir examples for example but still I doubt anyone would claim 100% success.

    The following example text is intended to show the fallibility of spelling checkers but should give speech to text programs a nervous breakdown. The audio version makes sense but the written version is nonsense, a speech to text program would be dreadful failure if it did deliver this rendition of the text:

    Eye have a spelling chequer,
    It came with my Pea Sea.
    It plane lee marks four my revue
    Miss Steaks I can knot sea.
    Eye strike the quays and type a whirred
    And weight four it two say
    Weather eye am write oar wrong
    It tells me straight a weigh.
    Eye ran this poem threw it,
    Your shore real glad two no.
    Its vary polished in its weigh.
    My chequer tolled me sew.
    A chequer is a bless id thing,
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right all stiles of righting,
    And aides me when eye rime.
    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed too bee a joule.
    The chequer pours o'er every word
    Two cheque sum spelling rule.

    Sorry, but no software is 100% correct. Any software you try cannot give completely correct audio to text conversions.

    With current technology, what you are looking for is most likely an impossibility. You will not (at least currently) find any software that will transcribe an audio recording with 100% accuracy due to the differences between multiple speakers. Most software does well when the major variations only concern pitch, but dialect and inflection differences tend to create more problems during processing of these recordings.

    For example, in the northeatern US you will find that words end up missing the letter 'r'. 'Car' ends up sounding like 'ka'. And in Texas, that missing northeastern 'r' finds it's way into 'wash' which ends up sounding like 'warsh'. I don't exactly know how those letters go missing from one location and end up thousands of miles away in other words, but it does wreak havoc with transcription software.
