4. Edit > Convert a Closed Caption File to a Script

Convert a Closed Caption File to a Script

If you’ve closed captioned your project, you can use a small amount of Perl code to extract a script for others to read.

In the business of video entertainment, if you sell a project to someone, she will probably request a script with timing information, also known as an As Broadcast Script in television. However, with a documentary or reality-style program, you might not have a script to give them.

Creating an As Broadcast Script is a time-consuming and tedious process. It involves listening to a section of audio and typing exactly what is heard. Often, a transcriber has to listen to a section of audio three or more times in order to accurately capture what is being said.
