Generating your Transcript

Here’s how to generate a transcript for your episodes:

1. Go to your episode’s publish page and click ‘Generate transcript’

2. A pop-up window will appear where you need to click ‘Generate’. It can take a few minutes to generate the transcript depending on your episode length.

3. When it’s ready, you’ll see a ‘Download transcript’ button.

4. From the pop-up transcript window, you have options to:

  • include speaker names (These will show as Speaker A, Speaker B, etc, but you can type in the actual names of the people speaking) English speaking only

  • include timestamps English speaking only

  • censor swear words

  • choose which file format to export

Note: If you have recorded in a language other than English, your transcription will appear as one block of text in the preview and downloaded file.

5. Click the ‘Download Transcript’ button when you’re done.

Transcription Fair Use Limit

Each Alitu account has a fair usage limit of 12 hours of transcription per month. You will see an error message if you've exceeded the limit.

You can view your transcription usage in the "settings" section of your account.

If you need more transcription hours, we can manually process this for you. The cost would be $1/hr. All you need to do is contact the support team using the chat box below and let them know how many more hours you need.
