Transcribe Instagram Stories and Videos

Transcribing your Instagram stories is a great way to improve your SEO and maintain strong Google Search rankings for your videos. Instagram stories are one of the most popular features of Instagram, but most aren’t accessible to deaf and hard of hearing people.

So what need to do? How do you increase accessibility for those who are hard of hearing while simultaneously boosting your rankings?

In fact, it doesn’t even need to be your video. Perhaps it’s an attractive video you saw which you want to transcribe and share. Perhaps it’s a promotional video you posted on your Insta account and now need the transcript to email to someone.

A great way to deal with this is to create a transcription of your video using Autosubtitle. It only takes a few moments and it really is so simple. And when I say ‘simple’, I mean easy-peasy!

Here’s how to create a transcription for your Instagram videos.

1. Open the Instagram video you want to transcribe

You can transcribe one of your own videos or maybe you want a transcript of an interesting talk or interview you came across.

Whatever your needs and no matter the content of the video, the process is always the same. First, you find the video you like and then you go to step 2.

2. Copy the url of the video from the top of the screen

Currently, there’s no simple one-click download option on Instagram for users to download, so copy the URL and follow step 3 for the next best option.

3. Open a free Instagram-video-downloader, paste the link, and download.

Search the keywords “Free Instagram downloader” on your browser. Pick one, then paste the Instagram URL you copied into it, and download the video.

Here is a recommendation.
