No one enjoys creating closed captions for video. YouTube has an algorithm, which for the most part does a decent job creating them, but it's not without flaws.
Adobe looks to perfect its own version in Premiere Pro with Speech to Text, a Sensei-powered feature that will automatically generate a transcript and add captions to your video.
Though the feature isn't expected to arrive until next year, when it does, it will mirror the pacing of your talent's speech and match it to the video timecode. So, as your subject speaks, the captions will be automatically generated and adjust along with your edit. Cool.
Adobe says the feature will support a number of different languages including English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, French, German, Chinese, Hindi, and more, which is a nice touch for our global audience.
Additionally, Premiere Pro will be seeing a new design tool in the Essential Graphics panel that will allow you to customize and style the captions. Though the Speech to Text feature will arrive in 2021, you can sign up to be an early adopter here.
