Apple Announces Automated Podcast Transcripts

Transcripts are coming to Apple’s Podcasts app. Here’s what you should know:

 For listeners:

  • Read the full text of an episode.
  • Search an episode and skip to an exact word or phrase.
  • Follow along as each spoken word is highlighted.

For podcasters:

  • A transcript will be generated automatically shortly after episode publication.
  • Podcasters may still provide their own transcripts, or download, edit, and re-upload automatically generated transcripts.
  • Apple will not update segments that have been changed with dynamically inserted audio after the original transcription is complete.
  • Music lyrics will not be included in transcripts.
  • Transcripts for backlog episodes will be added over time.
