Once purchased, you will see you credit-minutes added and updated on the main screen. It may take a few seconds for the payment and update to go through. Please note: for your convenience, we accept payments both from PayPal and from credit cards, whatever you choose. Payments are secured and processed by PayPal.


Then - last step - simply upload your file. Speechnotes-Files accepts most types of both audio and video files. Although, for your own convenience it is much preferable to upload audio files and not videos as videos are much larger in size. Which means uploading a video file may take much more time and data (if you are on mobile) than uploading only the audio part. So, if upload of a video file is too slow, or fails altogether due to interrupts, it is recommended to extract the audio out of the video and upload the audio part alone.

For your convenience, you can either upload a file stored on your local disk, or - you can simply paste the url to a file online. The url can be a direct url to an audio or video file, or a Google Drive url. If your files are already on Google Drive - then this is the preferred option. Please note that Google-Drive links are limited to 100MB file size.
Please note: if you select to pass a Google Drive url - please make sure the file is less than 100MB and that it is indeed publicly shared and accessible through that link, as we do not ask for a specific permission to access it. Here's how to get a public url for a file on Drive
