Click "Request" and wait for your confirmation email when your transcript is finished processing. This may take anywhere from 1 to 3 times the length of your episode so feel free to navigate away from the page while you wait!

My episode transcription isn't loading, what's wrong?

The Acast transcription tool is a powerful asset to automate generating transcriptions, but it does require the speech in a podcast to be clear enough to detect. If the transcription is having trouble loading, check that the spoken audio is clear in the file, and that it is in one of the above languages.

Can I transcribe an episode that is scheduled, but not yet published?

No, at this time episodes must be published for transcription.
