Apple makes searchable WWDC 2016 video transcripts available

WWDC 2016 Video Transcripts

Apple today announced that transcripts are now available to accompany its WWDC 2016 session videos. These transcripts allow developers to read the full content of session videos.

Not only does the transcript feature allow you to read through sessions, but developers can also perform keyword searches, see all instances where a specific keyword is mentioned in a video, navigate straight to the mentioned keyword, and even share a link to a specific time.

Under the transcript tab for each video, you’ll find that individual phrases are linked to quickly navigate to a specific portion of a video. This is extremely helpful when looking for specific talking points.

While the WWDC 2016 iOS app is a great provision for consuming session videos, the release of transcripts automatically makes the Safari experience for session videos a better experience in my opinion. That said, there was an unofficial WWDC 2016 Mac app that included transcription.

Even if you’re not a developer, you can still enjoy watching these session videos. Simply head over to Apple’s WWDC 2016 Videos page to jump right in.
