Transloadit is a SaaS with a subscription model.

Our /speech/transcribe Robot counts towards your Plan's data at a normal rate. It does charge a minimum of 1MB whenever it is used. Assuming an average input audio or video file of 2.4MB and an output of 0.12MB, that would still have a minum charge of 1MB, so here's what it would approximately cost to transcribe audio or video files per Plan:

Plan Price Costs per file within your Plan Overage Fee
Sandbox (2GB) Free $0.0
to transcribe 2048 audio or video files
Startup (10GB) $49/month $0.0048
to transcribe the first 10240 audio or video files
Small Business (30GB) $99/month $0.0032
to transcribe the first 30720 audio or video files
Medium Business (150GB) $249/month $0.0016
to transcribe the first 153600 audio or video files

Just like with your mobile plan, pricing goes down when you commit to larger monthly volumes. When you reach your plan's limit, we'll continue to service you, but remind you to upgrade to more cost-efficient plans. This is unless you explicitly set budgets. You can change plans at any time. More info and available plans on our Pricing page.
