How to read a transcript of your video

Get a transcript of your video for quick reading. 📝

⚠️ Please note that Loom's transcription feature is available to users in Business and Enterprise plans. It currently only works in English, and it's not possible to turn on and off at this time. Transcription is available on all videos that are 5 seconds in length or longer. It is not available on Loom's mobile apps.

Transcription allows for users in Business and Enterprise plans to automatically convert the speech in a video to text and display it alongside the video player for easy reading.

Here's how to use the transcription feature:

  1. If you're part of the transcription beta, you should see a Transcript Beta option on your video after you're done recording. Note that transcription is only available on videos you recorded after the feature went live, so you won't see it on any videos recorded before then. If you want to get a transcript for an old video, you can always re-upload it using the upload tool, which will give you a transcript for this new version of the video.

  2. Click on the icon. Your transcript will expand to the right of your video, separated into time stamps for easy tracking. From here, you can click on different time stamps in your video or different time stamps of the transcript, and each will jump around accordingly.

You can also copy the entire transcript to your clipboard using the copy button above the transcript or search for specific words or phrases using the search button.

Closed captions

If you're watching a video that has a transcript, you can also view closed captions while the video plays. Turn them on using the closed captions button at the bottom of the player.
