How To Pull Up The Transcript On Youtube

Hey there! Today, I’m going to show you how to pull up the transcript on YouTube. This feature can be super handy when you want to quickly find a specific part of a video, especially if you’re someone like me who loves watching educational content or tutorials. So, let’s dive in and get started!

Step 1: Finding a video

The first thing you need to do is find a video on YouTube that you’re interested in watching. Whether it’s a funny cat video or a TED Talk, the process is the same. Simply head over to the YouTube website (or open the app on your phone) and use the search bar to find the video you want to watch.

Step 2: Opening the transcript

Once you’ve found the video you want to watch, click on it to open the video player. Next, look for the “More” button beneath the video title and click on it. A dropdown menu will appear with a few options to choose from. Look for the option that says “Transcript” and click on it.

Step 3: Reading the transcript

Now that you’ve opened the transcript, you can see the text version of the video’s dialogue. The transcript will appear on the right side of the video player, and each line of text corresponds to a specific part of the video. You can scroll through the transcript to find a specific section or use the search function (usually denoted by a magnifying glass icon) to search for specific keywords.

Step 4: Playing the video from the transcript

If you find a specific section in the transcript that you want to watch, simply click on that line of text. The video will automatically jump to the corresponding part, allowing you to watch it without having to manually scrub through the video. This is especially useful when you’re trying to skip to a specific part or replay something you missed.

Step 5: Closing the transcript

Once you’ve finished using the transcript, you can close it by clicking on the “X” button at the top-right corner of the transcript panel. This will make the transcript disappear, and you can continue watching the video as usual.


And that’s it! Now you know how to pull up the transcript on YouTube. This feature is a fantastic tool for quickly finding specific parts of a video, and it can enhance your overall viewing experience. Whether you’re trying to follow along with a tutorial or looking for a specific quote in a TED Talk, the transcript feature has got you covered. So, the next time you’re watching a YouTube video, give it a try!
