7. Copy all of the text in the Notepad/text file. If you press CTRL+A when your cursor is in the text file, it will automatically select all of the words in the file. Make sure you right click and hit “Copy” or use CTRL+C.

8. Open up a Word document and paste the text into the document. You will see that the timestamps and caption number are still embedded in the text. So, you will then go through your captions line-by-line and remove the numbers and timestamps until just the transcript remains.
