There are many reasons to post a transcript with a video. First, accessibility. Also, skimmability (a word?)—good for anyone who wants to know if it’s going to be worth their time to invest an hour or more in watching an extended recording. Real-time captions don’t help much with that.

I know generating a transcript may take more time and effort. Are there useful tools to help with this? If there are captions already on a video is there something that can be used to auto create a transcript from them? And one that is accessible for screen readers?


@chendricks I haven't tried it yet, but Vosk could be a solution to generate a transcript from an audio file
