Company Dictionary Tips

Add words to your Company Dictionary to: 

  • Boost transcription accuracy 
  • Capture the whole conversation just as it happened 
  • Align what was said with key moments (positive sentiment, agent apology, etc.) 
Who can use this feature?

Dialpad Ai is available to all Dialpad customers on the Standard, Pro, and Enterprise plans.

It is only available for Offices in the United States and Canada. Dialpad Ai is also currently offered as part of a public beta in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom; if you're enrolled, you'll see a 'Beta' tag alongside Dialpad Ai in the Dialpad app.

Why It Matters

Transcription accuracy can be affected by a number of factors including: 

  • Different kinds of noise 
  • Crosstalk 
  • Accents 
  • Important words 
  • How transcripts are normalized 

Company Dictionary looks to solve for capturing those important words—the ones special to your business, packed with meaning, and arguably the most critical to be transcribed accurately.
