How can you transcribe video and audio?

In the past transcribing video and audio used to be a long and painful process. Most home producers of content were forced to do the job themselves, manually. There is no doubt that this is a boring, repetitive process that consumes far too much brain space.

You would have to listen back to the content slowly, pausing regularly to jot down everything you hear, and note who said what. This could add many hours to the video editing and production process, and leave the creator feeling drained and diminished.

In professional situations, creators may be able to outsource this tedious job but the end result was the same. Some poor soul had to manually comb through the video and type out everything they heard. As well as the tedium, there were a number of other problems with this slow, non-automated approach.

Mistakes were commonplace and often quotes were attributed to the wrong speaker. What`s more, this was a human-driven process which raised a privacy issue. As you would have to send your content to another person to have them transcribe it.
