Download and Save The Transcript Of A YouTube Video

A YouTube transcription is accessible to people with limited or no hearing. People who want to watch YouTube videos in an environment that is not conducive to playing audio can easily consume the content using transcripts and captioning.

By Third-Party Software

By Speech recognition software- Google Docs

It is also possible for you to get a transcript of a video without any available transcript by speech recognition software in Google Docs.

 Google Docs has a built-in voice typing feature that listens to video or audio and automatically types what it hears.

  • To carry out this process, follow the steps listed below;
  • Ensure that whatever device you are using is directly listening to the audio.
  • Firstly, open Google Docs.
  • Tap on start a new document.
  • Below the tools, tap on voice typing.
  • Go to your YouTube videos.
  • Choose any video of your choice, and then open it.
  • Allow the video to play with the sound.
  • Tap on the Google Docs microphone.
  • If you successfully carry out these steps, Google Docs will type whatever it hears automatically. Please remember that if the audio recordings have some noise from the background, it can affect the accuracy of the typing.

Google Docs tool is not perfect for recording voice-over text. In particular, this speech-to-text service also suffers from occasional glitches. Sometimes the tool will stop transcribing, and you have to click the Voice Typing tool to restart.

Note: The Accuracy can plummet If the audio has background noise or the people in the video are stuttering.

Although the automatic transcription of speech-to-text services has been of great help, the fact remains that it cannot fit up to the human level of accuracy.
