Video transcribing

Jan 19, 2017

Does anyone use a software that transcribes the narration from video clips that you're created? We spend a lot of time transcribing and I just believe there has to be a better way.

I have done it in the past by using YouTube's automatic closed caption generation, then cleaning up the text. It probably saved some time over doing a straight transcription, but not very much. The software for automatic captions just wasn't that accurate.

Instead of using software for transcriptions, I use Rev. It is worth it to me to pay $1 per minute to get transcriptions and to not have to deal with it myself.

So I assume that you have to upload the video to You Tube then, first?
