  • Configure your sound settings to use 2 channel Soundflower
  • Using Google Chrome, open a tab with the YouTube video to be transcribed. 
  • Open another tab and go to Google Docs. Start a new document.
  • Click ‘Tools’, then click ‘voice typing’
  • Go back to YouTube and play the video
  • Return to the other tab and click ‘Start speaking’. Stay in that tab and watch the video audio being converted to text. If you move out of the tab, the voice typing stops. Just click it to start again.
