How To Transcribe YouTube Video (Audio To Text)
It's Brandi of Blogginbrandi.com and in this video I'm going to teach you how to transcribe your YouTube videos using Rev.com. Be sure to stay tuned until the end. My YouTube Super Star Checklist. In order to transcribe your video, you're going to want to go to Rev.com and sign in. For me, I'm trying to place a new order and I'm doing a transcription order.
So you can either upload a file or you can paste the URL, for me, I'm going to paste the URL, which is what I pulled from the video that I'm doing
You're just going to add it, I'm going to say that I'm finished. It's a dollar a minute so this comes out to three dollars. I don't do the time stamping or the verbatim. YouTube will line this all up for me, which I'm going to show you here in just a second. So I'm going to checkout, this is already saved so I'm just going to place my order.
Now you can add speaker names, you can also add a glossary if there's complicated words
I always just add a Southern accent because I'm kind of country. Then I'm going to get a receipt. Now we have our transcript and we're going to download this transcript, open it up, go over to subtitles, add new subtitles, English. We're going to transcribe and auto sync. We're just copying and pasting our text into the box and we're going to select set timings. YouTube's going to time this for us. So the timings are done, now we're going to click on them. Now we can see the timings and you can see that YouTube has lined them up for us. So we're just going to check that all of this is reading correctly. Hey, it's Brandi. I can already see that there's an issue here and I'm going to go right here and correct it. Then you're just going to hit save changes. Now you can see the subtitles. The other good thing about Rev.com is if you hate the service you can rank it and probably get your money back. If you try it out and you don't like it, or they don't transcribe it right, then let them know and you're going to get your money back or they're going to fix it and make it right. So don't just assume that it sucks, give it a try and then do your part too. That's just how it works, it's called being in business. If you try this service out leave a comment.
Now you know how to transcribe your YouTube videos using Rev
com and there's a reason why you want to transcribe you YouTube videos, which is, for one YouTube will probably rank you higher if it can read what your video is saying.
The algorithm has no way of telling what your voice says, so if you can put that into your video, the more information that you give YouTube, it's going to help it rank your video for whatever topic you're trying to talk about
So from your title, to your description, to your tags, all of those things play a role. Now adding in closed captioning, that's just a big plus and think about it, there's a lot of people that don't do it. Another reason you might want to add it in is because you're able to reach another demographic. A lot of times, people are in a place where they can't view the video and listen to what's going on, but they can read it. Either way, you want to learn how to transcribe your video because you want people to find your video on YouTube and the more information that you give YouTube, the easier it is for your video to rank and the more likely it is to rank for what you're talking about. Now this is just one of the things that makes your video rank on YouTube.
