Edit Transcript Files

In order to produce a captioned video using the transcript you recieved from Docsoft, you will need to edit the transcript file, export a caption file and use Camtasia studio to put video and captions together.

A video tutorial on How to Edit the Transcript in the DocSoft Transcript Editor is available. Also, below are the written instructions.


If your transcript is not 100% accurate you can edit it by:

  1. Exporting the transcript in .txt Text format and editing it in Notepad or WordPad and re-upload the video along with the edited transcript to Docsoft to produce an accurate file.
  2. Another option is to download the native transcript .transcript and edit this using the Docsoft Transcript Editor installed at the Technology Learning Center Media and Captioning Project Rooms.
