Add an option for MS Stream to export the transcript to Word/Excel
I would like to have the option to export the Microsoft Stream video transcript to other filetypes (with appropriate formatting), such as Word or Excel. Perhaps the Word export would be a running paragraph of text with no timestamps, whereas the Excel export could be two columns. In column A, we could have the timestamp; in column B, we would have the text of that phrase.
This, and any other exports, would be greatly helpful!
Beyond exporting in Word or Excel, it's important for an option to export the file without the tags. I get it that the tags are important if you want to reload it back to synchronize back with the video, but equally valid are people who just need the Transcripts In the example below, the tag is longer than the statement itself, and it's there for every statement.
"NOTE Confidence: 0.894741058349609
00:55:55.490 --> 00:55:58.194
convenience. Yeah, I'll put it
in the calendar."

Yes to all these comments! It's ridiculous that you select and copy, but when you paste into Word, only a little part is there. The o.p.'s suggestion would be perfect.
You can clean the .vtt transcript here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/media/stream-utils/cleanvtt.html

I consider this feature 'table stakes'. A transcript *absolutely* should be made available! There are whole teams over here who want to quickly review and edit the transcript in Word. I like Seth's proposal above to enable downloads in both Word and Excel. There will be times where I want files with and without timestamps.

YouTube can do this now and has been doing it for years. This should be a standard function in your products, Microsoft.

I am extremely frustrated that this is not available! I can use dictation in Microsoft Office to create a pretty decent transcript of what I want to say for notes in a slide deck (a requirement for many of the decks I create at work). But based on the training I was given on Office 365, I I decided to talk through a video and upload it to create the transcript instead. I want those hours of my life back, Microsoft! It is completely ridiculous that I cannot export the transcript and if I do manage to copy/paste it, it is so garbled and full of time stamps that it is useless. Most people WANT a transcript in order to create another document based on the material. Why did you chop it up so that it is impossible to use it?
Shame, I read this feature existed already(?). Very disappointing - please fix asap.
Agree with Seth. There are more applications of the text beyond just the video. When we record long sessions (all day meetings), there are areas in the transcript that we would like to catalog and put topic markers against. For example, 52 minutes in, the issue of rising interest rates is discussed by the CFO and Risk committee. We may need to have that conversation in a marketing blast with a link to the video. For some, they won't take the time to watch the video, but read that excerpt.
Yes, yes , yes - needed.
I brought this system for this feature in July and to not have it working after 90 days is totally unacceptable. I have been working on this issue for more than 20 hours...,really disappointed and want this resolve NOQ!
This is ridiculous!
This would be a great feature. I create enablement videos and would like to record them informally at first, generate a script and then edit the script before re-recording the final version.

I could not agree more! It is really something that is MISSING!!!!

This would be a HUGE timesaver for me as a PM and PM manager where sometimes we need this level of detailed notes from calls. I am right now transcribing a 35 min discussion as I watch the transcription of the conversation scroll by - teasing me - that hey we transcribed it, but you can't have the whole thing. I just seems totally logical that the full transcript would be available via export.

Video can be exported, but not the transcript. Need to be able to publish recorded meetings on another platform https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/stream/portal-download-video
Essential, if you're going to transcribe meetings - otherwise, why bother? Please make downloadable. I just convinced my team to use Teams/Stream for hosting meetings, thanks to transcription, so it's disappointing to find out this flexibility does not exist - yet. Please fix that, Microsoft!!!! Thanks.

I just assumed this was a thing...and its not.
I found that I couldn't select all the transcript text. Only about 40 lines were put onto the clipboard even when I scrolled through the entire meeting selecting hundreds of lines
It's much easier to clean up the transcript if you can put it into a single document and use search and replace etc to fix issues. Line by line does not work.

Yes, I conduct a daily meeting with my assistant and would like her to copy and paste highlights of the conversation into my journal.
Dear God yes. I am at my wit's end trying to create legible transcripts for my online courses.
