Thank you for downloading ascribe.ai panel. This page is meant to guide you on how to use the panel. When launching the panel, if you don’t have an API token yet, make sure to create one to link your account to the panel. You can create one here: https://axlesupport.com/settings#/api
Once the panel is launched, you will need to select a clip or sequence from your project in order to transcribe it. Currently, ascribe.ai supports English, French, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. It doesn’t translate, so be sure to select the language matching what’s in the footage.
When the transcription process starts, the panel will export the audio of your clip or sequence in order to send it to be analyzed. You don’t need to do anything at this point. The panel will perform the task and you can continue to work on anything else in the project in Premiere Pro. Once the transcript is completed, it will be saved as markers on the clip or sequence. These markers will follow your clip and can therefore be re-used in the future. If markers can’t be saved on the clip, Adobe Premiere Pro will create an XMP file next to the clip where the markers will be saved.
Editing transcript and markers
ascribe.ai uses cloud-based AI/ML to automatically transcribe your footage and save it as markers on the clip or sequence. You can easily edit the transcript from inside the panel by clicking on the section you wish to edit. Any time you click outside of the section, the corresponding marker will be updated.
You can play the clip or sequence and the transcript will follow automatically in the panel based on where you are in the clip.
You can also edit markers directly in Premiere Pro… When you’re ready, you can click on the refresh button to update the panel with the edits from the markers back into the panel.
Exporting the transcript
When you’re ready, you can export your transcript in different formats, including SRT, VTT and TXT. Each format will keep the timecode intact.
The TXT export is meant to provide a file that can be printed.
The VTT export is meant to provide a caption track for your HTML5 video player on any site.
The SRT is a standard captioning format that can be re-used in many other applications.
