Easily Add Captions to Videos

Meastra’s transcription tool can be used to easily generate captions for YouTube videos. Captions can help viewers watch your videos in loud and distracting environments and provide better clarity and comprehension.

Improve SERP Rankings

Using a YouTube video transcriber like Maestra can help improve the visibility of your content. Search engines like Google use crawler programs to sort and organize different kinds of content. Transcribing and captioning your videos can allow these programs to index your content, making it more likely to appear in search results and attract more viewers.

Transcribe and Translate

Maestra can serve as a YouTube video translator, too. Easily generate transcripts of your videos in over fifty languages and upload them to YouTube alongside your video. Viewers will be able to choose their own language settings in accordance with their own needs and preferences.

Update Old Videos

YouTube allows you to upload captions to old videos you’ve already published. This means that with Maestra’s transcription tool, past videos can gain new views and inspire greater popularity for your channel as a whole.
