Question about new Speech to Text - will it work on source clips? If not, is that coming?

I signed up for Speech to Text - and I had a question.

 

The instruction seem to target using this is a tool for transcribing edited sequences for captioning.  Which is nifty for sure. But is there a way to transcribe source clips? 

 

For now, I've worked around the problem by dumping the raw footage into a sequence and then generating a transcript. However, it means the timecode now comes from the sequence rather than the raw media.  And I can't use traditional source/record editing marking in and out points.  I did try dumping the raw footage sequence into the source monitor but that cleared the text panel.

 

There USED to be a way to transcribe source clips in Premiere that went away several versions ago, that went away.  I think this is a great tool, BUT I think it's a bit narrow minded to just apply it to a captioning workflow. It would be great to to have Speech to Text integrated into the EDITING workflow as well. Since a lot of us are still using paid services for human or computer generated transcripts of our raw interviews.  Feature request?!

Yea, FR ... and the 'lead' discussions on the new captions workflow is mostly happening on the Public Beta forum, that's where the developers actually track the discussions. I STRONGLY recommend everyone using captions even if you don't use the public beta to follow that forum, and post comments and questions there.

 

Premiere Pro Public Beta Forum

 

And of course you can have the beta apps loaded and the public versions at the same time.

Agree! I need this behavior, too. Transcriptions are SO CLOSE to being exactly what I need. But transcribing a sequence intead of a clip is definitely a fly in the ointment rn.

The speed and accuracy of the new Speech to Text is impressive on my first test. 

 

Does the Premiere roadmap include plans to support this feature on raw media clips?  I remember this as a feature on CS6 (maybe even back to CS5?)  and as crummy (and funnny) as it could be a times, it was still more helpful for editing than just being able to transcribe a finished sequence.

 

For now, I suppose I'll edit together a selects sequence and transcribe that but it would be nice to have the transscript follow the media clips.

For now, simply make a sequence of each clip, that gets it transcribed. Then "pancke" style editing works quite well to cut your selected sections into the rough sequence. Then do your trims there.

There have been quite a few requests for this. CS6 actually had very primitive captions. But captions in pre-PR 2021 were on video tracks and you could workaround so they "stayed with" clips.
