Video is the best format to provide the right level of context and avoid misunderstanding. But at the same time, it's also hard to scan and digest longer videos. Transcripts, together with search and video annotation, solve for that.

Key benefits

Transcripts help you make your video content more accessible and user-friendly. How? It converts the spoken words into text and display it right beside the video player. This way, viewers can easily read along with what's being said and better understand your message. It's a super helpful tool for making sure your content reaches a wider audience.

Key benefits:

  • Multi-language transcripts: Automatically transcribe your recording into 100 different languages

  • High accuracy: Transcribes 1h of audio in 10s with a word error rate as low as 1%

  • Synced playback: follow along with your video transcript while you listen to the recording.

  • Speaker detection: automatically detect multiple speakers from your file. Add and rename speakers.

  • Search within video: Search the full text transcript of any video and find the exact moment you’re looking for.

  • Comment and share insights with your team: annotate the transcript, tag your colleagues, and share important insights with them.
