Vote DownVote Up (+4 rating, 4 votes)


Converting the audio content of a digital file into text can be done through YouTube. Audio is converted automatically to text using Google speech recognition in YouTube. After uploading a video file, YouTube processes the video (time depends on the length of the video) and subtitles or closed captions are automatically generated. The speech portion of your video will be transformed into closed captions that are displayed in the video player when viewers use the CC button. Below are links to explanations of how to use the transcription function in YouTube.
