Since transcribing audio and video files can be a lot of manual work, we have developed a plugin to support you in doing this.  Subsequently, this article will teach you about transcribing audio or video files with the transcript plugin.

Note: Before you can transcribe files, the transcription plugin has to be activated in the respective project.

Transcribing audio and video files

  1. Open a note containing an audio file (or video file with an audio track).
  2. Hover over the file container. A three-dot menu ••• appears in the upper right corner of the file container.
  3. Click on the three-dot menu ••• and select “Transcribe”. A popup dialog appears.
  4. Select the number of people speaking on the recording by clicking on the respective number.
  5. Select the spoken language in the recording by clicking on the language dropdown menu. The “Start transcription” button has a green color now.
  6. Click on the “Start transcription” button. The transcript is now in processing. A processing container appears below your file in the note. When finished, the transcript is inserted there.

Note: Regarding your plan and team size, there is a quota limit of total minutes that can be transcribed per month.

Aborting a running transcription

Note: Aborting a running transcription will not restore the redeemed minutes of your transcript account quota.

  1. On the upper right corner of the transcript processing container below the audio or video file open the three-dot menu •••.
  2. To stop the process, select the “Abort” option. The transcript processing aborts. The transcript will not be inserted.
