If Transcription is turned on in your Account, then when a video is uploaded to Sibme, it is transcribed and the transcription is available to be viewed and exported. Transcription can be turned on for the Video Library and if you are interested in transcription for Huddles and Workspaces, please contact [email protected]. Transcription must be turned on for your account so please contact Support if you have any questions.


Who is this article for?

Based on the default user settings in the Sibme platform, you should have permission to complete this task if you are one of the user levels listed below. If you do not see the screens in this article, you can ask your administrator if you have permission.

  • Users

  • Admin

  • Super Admin

  • Account Owner


While everyone will be able to view transcriptions of videos, only people who have permission to manage videos will be able to edit the transcription. By default, only Account Owners and Super Admins have this permission, but it can be enabled for Admins and Users as well.

Viewing Transcripts

When a video is uploaded to the Video Library, a Huddle, or a User’s Workspace, the video will automatically be transcribed. To view the text, click on the Transcription tab above the video.

Cinema Mode

When you enable Cinema Mode, the video player will fill the width of your screen. This shifts the items that were previously to the right of the video below the video. When Cinema Mode is enabled, you can access the transcription tab below the video.

Search Transcription

Directly above the text of the video transcript is a search bar. Use the search bar to find any text in the video transcript. You can then go to the moment in the video that corresponds to the text.

Export Transcription

You can also export the text of your video transcription by clicking on the three dots above the transcript on the video page. You can export the transcript as a PDF, Word file, or Excel file.

Editing your Transcription

Users with permission to edit videos will also be able to edit the text in a video transcription. To edit the text of a transcription, simply click on the text to open it in edit mode. Once you have made your desired edits to the text, click the green Update button.

Currently, only the text of transcription can be edited. Time-stamps for transcriptions are generated automatically and cannot be edited.
