The tool then generates subtitles on the timeline. The plus: users can also apply the style of their choice to the subtitles using the tools provided in the Essential Graphics panel. The American publisher states that the functionality is enhanced by Adobe Sensei and reflects the rhythm of the spoken dialogues, while matching the time code of the video exactly.
The Speech to Text (or Transcription) feature is available in preview on Premiere Pro, on the occasion of Adobe Max.
