The new captions feature allows me to identify individual speakers, but then when I click 'create captions' it doesn't show the speaker's name anywhere. What is the point of identifying the speaker and how do I show their name with their subtitles?

It looks like a start to a future feature. I see nowhere that the speaker name appears. It is not exported from the transcribe tab options to export a text file. The speaekr names are imported with a saved transcript. For anyone who has not tried this: You must elect the Speakers option when transcribing. After you do, in the Transcript tab, you will see, for example, "Speaker 1" etc on the left? Left click on Speaker 1, and pick "Edit Speakers." Change each name to whatever you want for that ...

There are several that ask for speaker name to be included in the export to a text file. Just search "speaker" in that forum.

Thanks. I just don't get why adobe always misses the most obvious things. Like why even include the multiple speaker option if you can't do anything with it? Same with not being able to rearrange tracks in premiere, or organize files in audition. These are such simple things that I just don't understand how they get overlooked.

Warpig,

It's not that details are "missed," it is sometimes that a feature is not possible to function in the way you want it to. I don't know of a NLE where you can "rearrange tracks" for example. You can rearrange tracks in AE, but it's not an NLE and each track contains only a single media file. Multiple speakers might be possible but some other detail about that feature we don't know about may be preventing fully enabling the feature.

 

We, as users, are not often privy to behind the scenes operations and it is difficult to remain patient and understanding when features come out and they aren't quite what you expect. That said, it is important to provide feedback in the places where the product team can consider your input.

 

In this case, on User Voice. Devs do lurk here, but they are much more active on that platform. There is also a space for Audition feedback on that site.

 

Thank You,

Kevin

You could easily rearrange tracks in.... (drumroll please).... VEGAS

 

You could do little else haha ... but, I mean, drop and drop the tracks, of course you could. Apparently it's not rocket science.

Also, I guess the comment is sortof -- why enable the panel, detect the speakers, and let you rename them -- if then you are to discover that you did that purely for giggles? 

 

It's not like the help file says "Note: Nothing will be done with this information." 

 

I would suggest in (i) tooltip as follows: "This feature is just for fun."
