There may be situations where you want to export or download a Transcript file or a version of a video's transcript to view or otherwise work with offline.
The Transcript editor provides an Export button for just that purpose.
You can select to download the WebVTT file, just like the Download transcript feature on the Media Details page, or you can download a simple text file of the transcript cues, just like the Download transcript feature in the Classroom transcript panel.
Two things you should know about the TXT file download:
- If you are using a Windows computer, do not open the file in Notepad; Notepad does not retain the line breaks in the file. Use WordPad or Word or another more robust text viewer. Macs typically open .txt files in TextEdit which DOES retain the line breaks.
- The TXT version of the file does NOT contain the cue timestamps or any confidence scores that may be associated with the automated version of the transcript; it only contains the spoken text for each cue.
The downloaded WebVTT file can be edited the same way we previously described in Editing a Transcription, using an offline text editing file. The edited download can then be uploaded to the media or uploaded to the Transcription Editor for further refinement.
