A transcript is a written version of an audio track and it can offer you many benefits, as it can help you to index your episode and make it quickly found online. Also, when a transcript is available for your episodes, your listeners can easily search through the content and find information they are interested in.

At Spreaker we made really easy to add a transcript for your podcast. You can use two amazing tools:

You can find all the info here.
Did you also know that our embedded player widget allows for the use of transcripts to be displayed directly from your own website? When using FreePodcastTranscription or Musixmatch and having your transcription in the SRT format, your transcription will be readily available for listeners wherever your player is displayed.
