Just a quick update with a feature that a number of people have asked for. Web Captioner now lets you save your transcript to a file.


You can open this file up in any text editor and make changes to it.

With this update, text is no longer truncated to 1000 characters during transcription. The whole transcript will remain intact until you close the page. Web Captioner will warn you before closing the page if you have a transcription.

Other Changes and Fixes

  • Added an option for clearing transcript without having to reload the page
  • Addressed an issue where speech recognition may stop and not start again if the tab isn’t focused
  • Will now attempt to restart speech recognition slightly faster if it fails
  • Fixed an issue where the volume meter may appear stuck when recognition stops
