StreamYard offers the ability to download a transcript of your recordings/live streams after they are finished! This feature is available for customers on the Professional Plan and up.
How to download your transcripts
Open your recording's download menu by clicking the three dots and then clicking Download.
Here, you will see an option to download your transcript! Transcripts can be downloaded in a .txt (text file) or .vtt(captioning) format.
The transcripts will take a little while to be prepared once you click Download. While this is in progress, you can leave the page and then go back later to download them.
What languages does the transcription feature support?
Currently, only English is supported, however, we will be adding more languages in the future.
Can I download transcripts for trimmed videos, local recordings, or shorts and reels?
No. Transcripts can only be downloaded for the main recording (cloud recording) at this time.
Will the audio from screen shares be transcribed as well?
Yes. Your transcript will include the audio from screen shares as well. This also includes speech from music.
What tools can I use to open the downloaded files?
.txt and .vtt files can be viewed in any text editor tool, such as Notepad on Windows, or TextEdit on a Mac.
Does the transcript include the name of the guest or host that was speaking?
No, this information will not be included but you can see the time stamps in the .vtt file download.
