Edit a generated transcript

For automated transcripts. You can open a generated transcript in the editing studio and review and edit it. The transcript includes time codes that allow you to play the audio from the beginning of the phrase, so you can compare each transcribed phrase to what was actually said. You can also use the search bar to search for words or phrases in the transcription that you know need to be corrected.

The system uses colors to highlight words that need to be reviewed for accuracy.

  • Red indicates a low level of accuracy. Words might be transcribed incorrectly.
  • Orange indicates a good level of accuracy. Words are probably transcribed accurately, but might be incorrect.
  • Blue indicates text you edited.

    Note: When you save the transcript draft, the text you edited changes to black.
