Why Transcribe YouTube Videos?

Turning your videos from a static library to a searchable asset that you can quickly search is a great benefit. Find where people have mentioned certain topics and subjects quickly and easily.

Captions are no longer just for the hearing impaired, especially on social media. Up to 85% of videos are watched without sound – and thus subtitles – are a requirement.

Sonnant is used by enterprise clients, media companies, marketing firms, podcasters, anyone with a content archive and almost any size business or person who produces YouTube video content.
