Add "import script" to cross-reference auto-generated transcript.
The auto-generated captions feature recently added is wonderful! I look forward to seeing some of the UI streamlined in the future.
My idea is this: in the transcription menu, add an "import script" option (or call it whatever) where you can copy/paste text (preferably rich text) for the program to cross reference with it's auto-generated transcription. The program already does a surprisingly good job, but this could ensure 100% accuracy for videos with pre-scripted content. Paired with the automatically timed captions, this could be a very useful addition!

Yeah. For scripted content (e.g. autocue), this is a must. Really frustrating it doesn't exist - could save hours of work.

This would be helpful for names that sound like other words, for example Keefe instead of Keith.

Correcting all of the grammatical errors in a transcript can be quite tedious, and much easier to do within an external word processor. But there's currently no way to input a text transcript and have all of the timing re-associated.

I think this a great idea for videos that you already have the script for. I think it would be the most useful for abbreviations and constant corrections to the auto-generated text.
