Apple has recently announced that it will automatically transcribe its podcasts, which will make it easier for people to enjoy episodes. Apple Podcasts will allow creators to upload their own transcript for display or opt for Apple to create one. However, there are a few things to be aware of. Apple Podcasts will start creating the transcription when the episode is uploaded. But, it may take some time before it is available for people to access. Apple suggests waiting for at least 24 hours after uploading an episode. For long episodes, the transcription may take even longer to become available. It is important to note that the transcription will not update if parts of the recording are changed with dynamically-inserted audio, and it will not display music lyrics.

Podcasters must follow Apple’s quality requirements for their episodes to get correctly transcribed. According to Apple, podcasts with people talking over each other or music may not have as good a transcription. If someone chooses to upload their own, it must be a VTT or SRT file. A podcaster can also edit a transcription for greater accuracy.

Apple Podcasts’ transcriptions will launch in the spring on iOS 17.4 and will be available in English, German, Spanish and French. This feature is available in more than 170 countries and regions, and older episodes will be transcribed over time.
