I have an existing video that I want to use to create a script for a new video. The video is an AVCHD video and the file tile is .MTS. It opens using Windows Media Player. I have heard that it can be converted using Camtasia and Windows Voice Recognition software. I am a newbie, so I need clear step-by-step procedures.
Import your video and Place your video on the Timeline. Then, Select "Captions" from the Menu. Left click the Gear Icon and select "Speech-to-text"
If you've never set up Windows Speech to text or disabled the pop-up you will be greeted by the Set-Up Wizard. You should follow the steps if you haven't done so.
Then you can convert your voice to text. Another Pop-Up gives you 2 options.
I've never had any luck with Windows Speech Recognition. I've tried every version Windows offered. I even tried to train it to recognize my voice tonight.
I use Dragon Naturally Speaking myself.I exported the same audio file into Dragon and let it transcribe it into text.Then I pasted the Dragon text file into Camtasia.It's not perfect.
Here's a side by side comparison of my results. Your results may vary.
