After I transcribe the audio and it's generated, I can change the speaker, but when I try to fix the transcription on the paragraphs it won't select it, there is no blue box around it allowing me to edit it (like everone else does in the tutorials making it look so easy!) but this is not happening on my. Can anyone help please it's so frustarating and wasting so much time, as I've shut the laptop, reinstalled the software and still getting this issue. I can search for a work and replace it, that does work but I can freely select and edit the tanscription which is what I need to do. Is this an 15.4.1 bug? I'm on the mac OS 11.6.

I'm Win10, but I think this should be working for you. This is the behavior I see.

 

Text (Captions) Panel, Transcript Tab. If you left click once on the text of a transcript paragraph, it highlights that word in blue (blue background behind white text). I cannot edit that word or change the selection. If I double click on the paragraph text, it puts a blue box around the paragraph and I can then select sections of text, edit, etc.

 

Did you try double clicking? Not very intuitive....

 

If that's not it, can you post a screenshot?

I am having the same issue, and while in the Transcript window, the scroll bar is stuck at the bottom.  I, too, cannot select any word, or paragraph to edit.

Same problem over here. I can generate the transcript but once it's done I cannot check it because the scroll bar is jammed at the bottom of the window. If you disable auto scrolling, this stops BUT the words are no longer highlighted as you playback the video. 

 

On top of this - when I go to generate captions from this transcript, it generates an empty captions layer.

 

Unfortunate to see this new tool already broken.

Same issues here - scroll bar is jammed at the bottom so I've disabled it and I can't edit the transcript. It's just not clickable. Restarted but not solved it. I am also not getting words highlighted when I play through. 

 

I am going to fall back on my go to which is to upload the video to Facebook Via the creator studio and download the vtt file it creates!

the only idea I have is to make sure you don't have anything entered in the search field in the text panel when you're using the caption workspace.

To everyone in this thread: @SportStir @petef99123534 @EmJC @lauraRRC 

 

I cannot get this to happen in 15.4.1 (final version of PR 2021). I CAN get it to happen in the release version of PR 2022. Please check to see what version you are running.

 

See this thread for the workaround if you are running PR 2022:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-discussions/adobe-premiere-pro-22-captions/m-p/12479853#...

 

In that thread, the symptom focuses on the incorrect transcript timecode and it not creating captions. But it also results in this scrolling problem.

Wow! Turns out all you need to do is set an in point. (and disable auto scrolling)

Start from the beginning or re transcribe. I can now edit transcript and create captions from there.
