In Transcript: Export to text file - must include Timecode info!
In Transcript: Export to text file.. To make this useful it needs to take clip name (all takes on timeline) and timecode info across so my (old school) documentary director can make a paper edit from interviews etc. Then provide me with time codes to build the assembly. (often barked down the phone!)
If I was self-directing and doing a project entirely within Premier. fine, I wouldn't need to export anything.
But filmmaking is a collaboration and the director doesn't want to touch the edit program but happy to look at text in Word or similar.
If the exported text file looked the same as what I see in the Transcript window that would be perfect. With Speaker (Custom)name/number, line number (from captions window - v.useful ), AND TIMECODE !!
My first test and the AI worked amazingly on a boomed IV clip to get nearly all text correct! Exciting times!

Unfortunately, not the speakers, but the timecode you can save in an external file. You have to do it some steps:
1. Transcribe like normal.
2. Even, if you do not need a subtitling, create with a copy of your video subtitles and THEN you can safe it as an SRT-file and if you open this SRT-file with Wordpad or another code editor, you can easily save it as TXT included your timecodes.
Try it out! It works. But you are right, Premiere Pro has to learn, it is not a perfect transcription tool. Transcription has also special signs or codes to mark special parts of the speech and they are not inside it. They have to written by hand.
Unfortunately, I did not find a solution to print or save the speakers. Adobe, please, do something!
Have a great day. Stay safe!

I think Mark is absolutely right. Timecodes an Speakername would be very useful. Till now you can not assign the transcribed text to a speaker or a time in the clip and that results in unnecessary extra work, that could be avoided easily.

Useless without timecode and speaker names, for documentary.
lauren williams commented
Time code is essential. It would be even more awesome if it worked liked script sync does in media composer
Brian Miller commented
It’s also useful in trailer and tv promos. Often times movies/tv shows will be sent off for transcription so it’s easy to find lines for frankenbites. Really surprised at the omission of it
Ben Reichman commented
This would make such a huge difference.
Lindsay Simpson commented
This is critical to efficient workflow!
Adam Brown commented
TC is essential for transcripts. Please add.
Julia Kots commented
It's really a shame that they didn't consult documentary editors when devising this feature. Transcript is useless without timecode. Please we need this ASAP!!!!!!!!
Laura Zusters commented
Yes I agree. I need a transcript with TC and speakers just like we see in Premiere to export to word so I can send to collaborators.
Don McNutt commented
Yes please!!!!! As the OP states, this is ESSENTIAL, and most especially for the kind of work we do in documentary production as well as corporate work.
Mark Hopkinson commented
It appears that this Premiere plug-in is powered by Trint who are clearly withholding this feature as it is available direct from them,
behind a subscription wall. As we already have to pay for our apps many times over through Adobe subscriptions, it would be nice to have access to this pro feature. Rather than what is essentially in app advertising
Jack Hilkewich commented
I suspect that this will be a service that they will eventually offer for a price?
Amy Fu commented
Same problem. Would LOVE to be able to export the transcript with Speaker info and Timecodes
Anna Hewson commented
Yes!!!! this is the exact problem I have, no Timecode on the export. Would love to see this updated
