Hey experts.  I have several voice memos that I would like to convert into text.  I know there are a couple of websites that have a function that can do this but, and I know how this sounds, I don't want to upload them as the material is sensitive.  Having them leaked isn't an option so I'm hoping there is a software option that can be used on a Linux or Windows host.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Thanks Strung!  I'm going to do a little more research into a Linux or Windows option before I close this out.
