Create a transcript in Adobe Premiere from a movie or audio file

Adobe Premiere Pro can create a transcript from a movie/audio file.

Premiere is a part of the Adobe suite, so it can be installed on UW machines.

To install, open up the Adobe Creative Cloud app, and find Premiere in the list of apps - click the Install button.

After it finishes, quit the creative cloud app and open up Adobe Premiere from the start menu.  Make a new project, and find the Project pane - you can always find the pane you're looking for under the Window menu.

In that Project pane, right-click in the middle of the space that says "Import Media to Start" and select Import.  Find the audio file and click the Open button.

That will put the media in that pane - then click on that media item and drag it to the Timeline pane.  The cursor will change to a closed hand when you drag it over.  This will fill the timeline with the audio.

Then click on the menu Window -> Workspaces -> Captions and Graphics, which will show that pane.  In that pane, click Transcript in the upper left.  Then go back to the Timeline pane, and click on the audio track(s) in the timeline to select it.  This should present a blue button to Transcribe, back in that effects pane.

Click transcribe, and if it asks, use the nuilt-in AI engine (that was the only selection in the list I had).  That should start the process, and give you a timer and progress bar in that pane.  It might take about 10 minutes for an audio clip of that size to render.

When it finishes, you'll see the transcribed text.  Find the Program pane, which you can get under the Window menu if it's not showing.  Click the play button to have it preview it.  Hit stop when done, and go back to the Effects/Transcipt pane, and click the 3 horizontal dots in the upper right of that pane, and Export -> Export to Text File.

This should make a nice timecoded text file of the transcript.
