I'm wondering if there are any factors that make transcription faster or slower? (For example. what else you have running on your computer, available memory, available hard disk space, other factors?)
I'm currently on version 23.6, and I have the checkbox for Automatically transcribe clips checked in Preferences. Everything that I've been transcribing is in English.
It eventually gets there, but sometimes I just have to leave it running overnight for it to get to done. So I'm wondering if there's anything else I could be doing on my end to reduce the time required for transcription.
Thanks for reading!
Thanks for the suggestion to reset preferences and delete cache files. I tried both yesterday, and neither seems to have changed the (long) times it takes to transcribe.
I tried transcribing a 2 minute test clip yesterday, and it didn't finish until a few hours later. (I had it running for two hours before I went to bed, and it wasn't done at that point, but was done by morning.) I also noticed in other tests that Premiere will say "Transcribing... (a few seconds remaining...)" and be displaying that for hours.
I'll note that I am now on the most recent version of Premiere, 24.0. My OS is Windows 10, CPU is an Intel Core i7-6560U at 2.20GHz, RAM is 16 GB. GPU is Intel Iris Graphics 540 (in the CPU).
Any ideas on what may be happening? I appreciate your time and assistance!
Sorry, but I think the answer is in your computer specs. That is a truly ancient rig there ... a 2 core, 4 thread 2.2Hz CPU from 2015, past "service life" from Intel, and with only 16Gb of RAM ... Premiere is barely able to run on that rig.
A modern NLE like Premiere or Resolve or Avid needs more ooomph ... it's just the way it is.
Thanks Neil for the thoughts - I appreciate it.
An ancient rig it is indeed. 🙂 [insert pirate "argh!" here] And I agree probably way overdue for an upgrade. But you might be surprised and how much I'm able to create in Premiere on it, for materials for classes I teach. Auto transcription is the first time I've run into a technical barrier that has been a notable issue for what I use Premiere for.
It may be that the computer specs already have me at the limit on auto transcription performance on my machine. But I'm curious if anyone has ideas on things to try here (other than what Kartika already recommended trying on resetting preferences and deleting cache files)?
At this point, I think doing this when you're going to be on a break or overnight might be an idea. That's basic CPU work going on there, so not sure how it would be expedited.
