Google Chrome has new feature for speech to text any video. (only english)
Are there any way to edit or select text in this box. İ tried some methods but. It’s not a dom element. I can’t edit or access this box.
I need to access this text for copy. But text in the box cant editable or copyable.
If there is any config for manage this box I can try.
I noticed that the example is taken from YouTube, where auto-generated
text transcripts of the videos are automatically available in many cases.
- To access this feature, click the three dots menu (
...) below the video
and select “Transcript” from the menu
- You may be asked to select a language or you may be able select a language
from the drop-down element. Make your choice and you’ll see a full transcript
along with timestamps.
- You may disable the timestamps by clicking the three-points hamburger
icon and selecting “Toggle timestamps”
- Click and drag to highlight all the text (it will scroll automatically)
to copy it.
You can paste this text anywhere to create your transcript in a text file.
For more information with screenshots see the article
How to Transcribe YouTube Videos Automatically.
For other cases where the text is inaccessible, you could use an OCR product.
I have used with much success the open-source application
This product is very accurate and is a alternative to accessing the text-box.
Using greenshot on your second image gave me this:
“computer power supplies output 12 volts If you apply 12 volts to a CPU
it‘ll look something like this”. Pretty good and very accurate.
I don’t know if you can access the live caption box but an easy workaround is you can screenshot the screen (Win + PrtSc) and use something like google translate to extract text.
