Google’s comprehension is very very good, but still far below professional quality in my opinion. So if you’re going to do something like this, you’ll definitely want to go through yourself and make corrections. Also keep in mind that the longer your recording is the harder it will be for the software to keep up, so shorter clips are usually best.

There is an iPhone and probably Android app called Just Press Record, $4.99, that tries to transcribe its own recordings, but naturally it has to be a clear recording.  I do not know if it can do that with an imported file.

I'll see if I have a file to test that on.

I have found a number of options for taking MP3 (and other recorded audio) and feeding it through a program to convert to text.  Mind you, you'd then have to copy that text and put it in MS-Word or Notepad or whatever, and you can be sure it won't be perfect and need massaging, but such utilities exist.  I am not going to do the deep dive research into the "how to use it" end, that's up to you.  See the following:

Julius Developed in Japan but handles multiple languages, including English
Simon Which is a user interface that overlays Julius, which would have to be installed, that may be more user friendly

Mozilla Deepspeech But this is only for the Linux platform and requires the use of the command line
