Speech-to-text In Premiere Pro – Fast, Easy, Accurate, and Free

This video tutorial teaches you how to convert speech-to-text in Premiere Pro.

I’ve been using Premiere Pro for more years than I care to think about, and most recent new features, as you’d expect with a mature product, are incremental. This new speech-to-text feature is absolutely an exponential addition that’s going to change how we think about captioning and transcribing content.

Here’s the gritty lead from my article on Streaming Media Producer:

I’ve been using Adobe Premiere Pro probably for over 20 years, and I don’t think there’s ever been a feature I’ve been more excited about than the speech-to-text transcription function they’ve just introduced in the most recent upgrade. It’s fast, it’s accurate, it’s free, and it’s incredibly easy to use.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use it and how it’s going to transform any video that can benefit from captioning–which is to say, almost any video, period. In the tutorial video above, you can see Premiere Pro’s captioning in action.

Here’s the video. Enjoy. For those who prefer text over video, click here for the text article.
