In order to get the most mileage from your videos, you want to ensure that they can be found in search results. One of the simplest ways to do this is to ensure the description is as completely filled in as possible. Rather than spend a long time thinking about what to put in the description why not add a transcription of everything that is said in the video.

YouTube very kindly take care of this for you and it will even save you time when uploading new videos. All you have to do is follow the instructions in the YouTube video we have created below.

Alternatively, click on the three dots to the right-hand side of the share button and select “Open Transcription”. Remove the timestamps and select the text. Copy and paste this in to the video description and hey presto you have a full transcription of your video for free.
