exporting option into a word doc for transcriptions
I wanted to export my transcript in an editable form such as notepad or word doc. Am I missing how to do this? I don't know how to open a .prtranscript file and can't find anything on it. I want to be able to take the script out of premiere and make changes.

I don't see why it has to be a format that isn't basically plain text.
I wanted to export this so that the client could check they are happy with the transcription, before I proceed to stage 2 which is setting it into captions.

Would anyone have a sample project with info inside they'd like to export ? To see what would be feasible

Completely agree with all comments. It's clearly getting there, but why there's no export of all fields (transcript, timecode and speaker name) which clearly reside ion the software as a plain text or .csv file yet I have no idea... it'll be a game-changer when we get it!
David Harnden commented
When you export to CSV, you the Speaker Name, Time Stamps, and text...
"Speaker Name","Start Time","End Time","Transcript"
"Ben Parker","00:00:00:08","00:00:06:24","I'm going to record to the computer, because last time I tried to record to the cloud and I didn't have space there."
"Ricardo Hinojosa","00:00:06:24","00:00:08:12","Yeah. Yeah,"

Apparently this feature has been added in v22 - you need Catalina for this on a Mac or Win 10 on a Windows

Sorted, you can now "Export to text file" the transcript in the menu (3 dots) - Thanks!
Travis Rummel commented
Agreed, please allow export to .txt or .doc as shown in the transcript window with speakers and timecode. It would be so helpful.

I think the new text to speech function in Premiere is a really good new feature. It saves me tons of work. BUT :)
The prtranscripts should contain TC and speakers names but can only be used in Premiere? Why?
Nick Lear commented
For now I just export an SRT and copy that into a doc, but the formatting of it is very bad compared to a normal transcript.

I love the transcription feature. It may not be "****", but I still think it is the bomb. I am trying to sell my company on using Premiere Pro more in its workflow and it is an uphill battle because they have invested heavily in a competitor. Unfortunately, a plain txt file or a caption-burned copy of the video is a no-sell and takes the wind out of my sails. Allowing the user the ability to get quick and easy editable transcriptions of long interviews without having to ship that material out to a third-party "service" is a huge workflow advantage that the competition simply does not have. Beyond that, having the ability to save a formatted transcription of offloaded material for future reference would be an incredibly helpful and time-saving feature for any organization that deals with tons of interviews.

We are having to use both the SRT and the text export and then editing the text file and cross referencing the SRT to find the timecodes, which is very clunky. It is very frustrating when you can see exactly the format we need it in presented in the 'Transcript' tab (paragraphs with timecodes) but there is no way to export it like that.
I am also getting random crashing when I do the 'Create Captions' operation. Most files are alright but occasion files will make it crash even if we try and re-transcribe them in a new project.
Jonathan Crosby commented
It seems thet the new beta 15.4.0 will let you output a transcript as a text file (The three dots to the left of "Create Captions"). But there is no time code, and no 'speaker' name... yet!
We are getting closer!
Angus Farquhar commented
I agree 100% with this. When working with long interviews we want to be able to edit in text with timecodes on the chunks so that we know roughly where in the interview we should be looking. The prtranscript file is unusable by anything else and the plain text version doesn't have the time stamps or the speaker info shown on the transcript in premiere. The SRT has chunks that are too small to be useful.
Holly Blanchard commented
Agree so much! It's nice to be able to export an SRT timestamped caption file, but it breaks the captions into such short lines. I can only find an option to export that .prtranscript file while I can't find a way to open--but if I could export the transcript itself (NOT the captions) into Word or even a txt file, that would be amazing.
Anna Beeck commented
I have the same problem. Would be so useful if one was able to edit it.
Scott Elliott commented
Totally agree on this! I've been playing around with the transcript function and it's great! Like just as good as the paid AI transcription from Rev. Then the subtitle function is again perfect putting in the text as captions over the interview.
What I need is to be able to EDIT the transcript as a Word doc or Google Doc to create a script based off the transcript. I see where this is possibly going:
1. Shoot an interview
2. Bring it into PP
3. Get a transcript made
4. Export the transcript with timecode
5. Re-import into PP and have PP cut the pieces of the interview into a video!
Ha ha. Maybe further down the line, but for now, just being able to edit the transcript would be super helpful.
Jonathan Crosby commented
Seriously. It would be so useful to be able to print out time-coded transcripts.
