3. Working with an existing video transcript

If you already see text next to your video, that means your video transcript was generated previously.

You can now export the text as a file (or edit your video using text!).

4. Generate Transcript From Video

If this is a new video you’ve just uploaded, it won’t have a transcript already. You need to click on the ‘Generate Transcript’ button to create one now.

5. Make any edits to the text

This is important! Editing the text does two things.

  1. It will reflect the changes in the subtitles to your video
  2. It will edit the text as it should be exported in your text file
  3. The ‘Delete‘ and ‘Split‘ button is used to edit the actual video!

6. Export the video transcript

When ready, you can export the video (and the transcript). You can do a separate export of each.

Click on the ‘Preview and Export‘ button. Then under the ‘Transcript and Subtitles Files‘ you can click the Generate file. This will also create subtitles to upload into YouTube, Vimeo or other video hosting services.

Why Create Transcripts from Video?

#1 Create Articles and Blogs from your Video Transcripts

Video content marketing helps boost your audience further, there are several things you can do to get more out of your videos. Above that, we all know that SEO is a powerful strategy to draw in visitors to your site or blog.

By simply extracting the text from your video, you can turn it into a blog
article. Just add a bit of structure and formatting for a reading audience, and you’re all set to post to your blog.

This is great if you’ve been relying only on video content such as vlogs and talking head videos.

Faster content creation. Who doesn’t like that?

#2 Accessibility for those that can't hear audio

Content creation these days almost make it mandatory that you create a transcript from videos. Remember not all users are able to listen to dialogue. If you want to engage a wider audience then make sure your content can be consumed by users with disability or accessibility issues. Both subtitles and transcriptions help

#4 Add text as Subtitles and Closed Captions

Auto creating the transcript has a major side benefit (in Imvidu that is): You can instantly add subtitles or captions to your videos! That means you don’t have to manually listen and type out the subtitles. This is a tedious process which most common video editing tools force you to do.

#5 Get Creative

Why not get a bit fancy for your content marketing. Having the transcription handy makes it much easier to pick out quotes from your video. You can use this for more content marketing on social media.

#6 Oral History and interviews

Transcribing your interviews for whatever purpose, will serve for the archives as well as the above.

It also helps to give the transcription to your interviewee before you publish the video to get their approval. Remember, this is easier than giving them a post production video only to have to re-edit the video!
