Interactive Transcript

In addition to captions and transcripts, you have the option to add an interactive transcript, which lets users interact with your video in an entirely new way. Users can search the video and navigate by clicking on any word to jump to that exact point. It’s even possible to share sections of a video by simply highlighting the text. Learn more
