Transcriptions create a text version of your video’s content that can be read separately or alongside the video. Captions are timed text boxes that include all auditory elements—like background lyrics, emotive descriptions of the score, and even environmental sounds of traffic or crickets—and appear in the video, popping up in real-time.
In Runway, captions and transcriptions both begin with our intuitive AI that generates speedy and accurate audio-to-text results. After we’ve magically transcribed your video’s audio with the press of a button, you’ll have the option of applying the generated text in whatever form you need, including:
- Subtitles – Add subtitles in a multitude of languages for a universal on-screen script that keeps up with dialogue and highlights your subject’s words.
- Captions – Use captions to provide viewers with a thorough audio-to-text experience, incorporating all auditory aspects of your footage into a medium your audience can enjoy with or without sound.
- Transcribed format – Publish an accurate and digestible text transcription process of your video to draw in every type of reader across the internet.
While all audio-to-text elements start with transcription, you can use your generated text for a variety of functions. When it comes to Runway, the options are limitless.
