Re-transcribe sequence and Language Selection aren't available for Text-Based Editing

While I was hyped by the Text-Based Editing feature released on Premiere Pro 23.4 today, but I was confused by the new feature. I transcribed a sequence of a 40-min interview in Cantonese, but the default language was set to English, until I found out it's transcribed in nonsense English, the "Re-transcribe sequence" option in the drop down menu was greyed out. There is no way to delete the transcription data or redo the transcription process, unless I tried the old way "Generate static transcript" so I can choose another langauage and retranscribe the sequence, but text-based editing isn't available. 

 

Has anyone found out how to re-transcribe a text-based editing sequence? Or simply the feature wasn't there?

You can not re-transcribe a TBE Sequence because it is not transcribed 🙂 - only the contained source footage is transcribed. The TBE sequence is just a compilation of that source material. 

 

So if your source clip is already transcribed in Cantonese, the sequence will also show a cantonese transcript.
If you really want to hard-transcribe the sequence, please select "Generate Static Transcript..." from the overflow menu in the text panel (upper right corner of the panel). This will disable TBE

I think you are in the "selection" mode and not the edit mode. Click the edit text (testo corretto?), press the Enter key, or double-click.

 

Does that work?

In the project panel, right-click -> re-transcribe. That should the option to pick language.

The subject of this thread is re-transcribing a source clip when the language was incorrect. And it deals with the problem of the re-transcribe option being greyed out when you are in Sequence/Program Monitor view when the transcription is of a source clip. The tutorial does not address this. The tutorial recommends creating a static/sequence transcript to avoid the issue, but does not explain why "re-transcribe sequence" is greyed out.

 

The confusion about source media transcriptions and sequence ("static") transcriptions is a primary part of the text-based editing learning curve. If you don't want to use the text-based editing functions, just create static transcriptions of sequences and update (re-transcribe) as needed. And do not create source media transcriptions. But the text-based editing functions are very useful, and it is important to understand the difference even if you are not planning to use them.

 

Early in the tutorial, the sequence shown is already transcribed using "create static transcription." We know this because the 3 dot menu shows "Generate text-based editing transcript" and "re-transcribe sequence."

 

Then they click on another sequence, and say "it just doesn't work," because re-transcribe sequence is greyed out.  This time, we can see that there is only a source media transcript, because we see "create static transcription" and, since there is no static transcript, "re-transcribe sequence" is greyed out.

 

If you have only a source media transcript, and you are in Source Monitor view, you will see "Re-transcribe clip" (NOT sequence).
