How to Translate Speech Into Text in Adobe Premiere Pro


Adobe Premiere Pro allows users to analyze speech in video so that editors can navigate through footage easier and reach specific sections of dialogue for editing purposes. The data is used in a metadata file that stays attached to the media for the remainder of the project. Along with the metadata, editors can copy and paste the text to create fast subtitles to go along with the video. You can only achieve the speech-to-text process in CS4 or higher versions of Adobe Premiere.

  • Click on the "Window" menu at the top and select the "Metadata" window. It will pop up in the workspace.

  • Click once on the media clip for which you want to convert the speech to text. The most successful clips to convert feature clear dialogue, minimal background noise and microphone recordings.

  • Scroll down in the "Metadata" window and click on the "Analyze Speech" icon. A list of options will pop up on the screen.

  • Set the language for the speech. If the media features multiple languages, you have to analyze the speech separately each time for each separate language. The default language is set to English.

  • Set the quality options for the conversion. If you want a basic speech summary, use low quality. If you want a word-for-word accuracy, choose the highest quality. The higher the quality, the longer the transition rendering will take.

  • Click "OK" to start the speech-to-text analysis. Once complete, a "Speech Analysis" window pops up on the screen with the converted text.

  • Hold "CTRL" and press "S" to save the project and automatically save the converted text.
