A wrapper for transcription results.

Project description

Transcriptor Logo


A transcription service wrapper that makes it easier to work with transcriptions.

Transcription services provide a cost-effective way to add accessibility to your audio and video, but they are often a challenge to integrate into your system.

Transcriptor aims to make working with transcriptions easier.

Transcriptor looks at transcription objects as a class.


  • An object-oriented approach to Transcriptions, Markers, and Speakers
  • Nondestructive manipulation of text and references.


Install transcriptor using pip.

pip install transcriptor


Transcriptor currently does not support automated transcription upload, but it supports creating READABLE Transcription Job Object from their output.

Importing Transcriptions from AWS Transcribe

Because transcriptor is designed to wrap around AWS Transcribe if you have configured your environment with information for AWS, you can directly convert AWS Transcribe jobs to Transcriptor Jobs with the amazon.from_job() method.

from transcriptor import amazon


Alternatively, you can load the object via the TranscriptFileUri (amazon.from_uri()) or the JSON object directly (amazon.from_json()).

A loaded Transcription Job from AWS Transcribe will give you access to Markers, Speakers (if included), the provided Alternatives. You also have the original job object that you can interact with.

Importing from an SubRip Subtitle (SRT)

Text Transcriptions from the Web can be very unique in style, but the most common format is that of at srt file.

You can load an srt file into transcriptor and use that to interact with the individual markers.

from transcriptor import Job


A loaded Transcription Job from srt files will make Markers.

These markers are given in order as a list. This gives you the ability to modify a single Marker or iterate your changes across a range or all of the Marker objects.
