Get instant access to YouTube's automatic captions. Transcribe/caption in DIY Captions, TranscriptionPad, Amara, or oTranscribe.
GET IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE TEXT OF YOUTUBE CAPTIONS AND EVEN "AUTOGENERATED CAPTIONS" RIGHT FROM ALMOST ANY YOUTUBE PAGE.
When you're watching a YouTube video, just click on the extension icon, then click on "Get Automatic Captions." A transcript of the captions for the video will immediately be displayed (assuming that they exist). From there, you can copy that text to a clipboard and edit it in the word processor or text editor of your choice.
But that kind of editing can be a hassle, since you'll probably have to switch between the YouTube video and your editor, which can be very time-consuming. No worries, we've got you covered.
Here's how. By selecting the second option in the DIY Captions Launcher extension, "Edit with DIY Captions," the captions for the video will be opened in a fully-integrated captions editor that has been designed to make it super-fast and easy to turn YouTube's automatic captions into a professional transcript of the video.
Your target video doesn't have any captions yet? We've got you covered there too.
This extension allows you to immediately open the video in one of two editors specifically designed for transcribing YouTube videos, Transcription Pad, and oTranscribe.
Or, if you're interested in actually creating captions for the video, you can immediately open the video in Amara's tool for creating captions for videos whether you're the creator of the video or not.
And captions or subitles created using in the Amara system can be viewed directly in YouTube using the "Subtitles for YouTube Chrome" extension by Yash Agarval. You can add Yash's extension to Chrome by visiting the page below.
Give the DIY Captions Launcher a try today. You'll be hooked.
