YouTube Video Transcription Services

Everybody loves a good YouTube video. From interesting and informative TED Talks to hilarious comedy videos when you need a bit of cheering up, YouTube videos are great! In fact, some of them are so good that they can be used for a variety of personal and academic research purposes. This is where we transcribe youtube videos.

YouTube Transcripts

Many video users find themselves at one time or another looking to do some voice typing or transcribe their videos. This may be for legal purposes (company policy or even in some cases, legislation requires sub-titles/captions on educational or other informative videos) or for search engine optimisation (SEO) to help promote the video on public platforms.

While YouTube itself provides a cc button for captioning (read Google Support on how to caption) to do this automatically, if your video requires high-quality accurate captions or sub-titles, then your choice is really limited to either doing it yourself or outsourcing this task to a specialist video transcription service that can guarantee at least 99% accuracy.

But really, who’s got the time, energy (or even ability) to accurately capture every single word that is spoken in the YouTube video of your choice? We do! Look no further than Way With Words for the transcription of any YouTube video, quickly and in the format you want.


How Does It Work?

Just go to our instant video calculator (see below) and open an account (it takes less than 60 seconds) and then upload your YouTube video file. You will see your file in your account. We will start transcribing it as you instructed. For more information on how to start using our transcribing service, view our video transcription services guide.
