How the Video to Text Converter works

1. Sign in and upload your video to start

Sign in and simply upload or Drag & Drop your video from your PC into the video to text converter.

2. Auto Convert Video To Text

Imvidu works best for videos that have a lot of talking. Interviews, podcasts, and vlogs are good examples of such videos.

Once your video is uploaded, click on ‘Generate Transcript’ in the converter. Your video will automatically be converted into text.


3. Style your text on video

You can style your text as subtitles if you want to ‘burn them’ on top of the video. Otherwise feel free to edit the text. You can edit within the video to text converter app.

4. Export Text

The Imvidu video to text converter app lets you export the converted text as a text file OR as a subtitle file.

The main difference is the text file contains NO timestamps. The subtitles (.srt) file contains timestamps as per your video.

Why Convert Video to Text

#1 Convert Videos Into Blog Articles

We all know that SEO is a powerful strategy to draw in visitors to your site or blog. But if you have video content at your disposal, then simply extracting the text from it will let you turn it into a blog article.

The auto converter will help a lot, so you just need to add a bit of structure and formatting for a reading audience, and you’re all set to post to your blog.

#2 Turn Video Courses Into Supplementary Text

It’s great to have visual content in your courses. But for accessibility it makes learning more sticky if you can supplement any videos with text. This also makes it easier for students to revisit content, grab notes and provide reference points, instead of having to go through a whole video again and again.

#3 Assistance With Accessibility

For users with hearing issues, having text is a must. Depending on the purpose of your video, you could be missing out from getting engagement from this audience. Not only so, it just makes sense if you want to make sure you engage everyone that you create content for. This is ideal for the long interview style videos or podcasts recorded and edited as videos.

#4 Add as Subtitles or Captions

Formatting your transcription into a subtitle text file (.srt) let’s you embed closed captions or subtitles to your videos where ever you have them hosted, for example Vimeo or YouTube.

Not to mention that nearly 85% of videos on social media are watched on mute!

In this case you can hard code your subtitles on the video when you produce your video file.

You can use the video to text converter to auto generate subtitles in a few clicks, then either overlay them on your video and you can also export as a separate text file.

#5 Not just text but other media too

Content marketing doesn’t have to be hard. Why stop at text? You can transcribe your video into text, audio, and smaller bite size video content for social media.

This is super important if you are vlogging or doing just talking head videos. Instead of relying on YouTube as your audience you can start expanding your message and reach by repurposing your content.
