Automatic sermon transcription in Faithlife Proclaim means you can do more with your sermon, without investing any extra time.
In two clicks you can turn your audio into a manuscript, allowing you to:
- Automatically pair text with audio for closed captioning
- Use your transcripts for blog posts, social media, or book manuscripts
- Search, tag, and catalog your sermons more easily
That means more people interacting with God’s Word in more ways—especially the hearing impaired.

Click to transcribe
After you’ve recorded your sermon in Proclaim, and before you Publish, simply check a box to have Proclaim automatically transcribe it.
When you publish your sermon, Proclaim will automatically generate a transcript and publish it to Faithlife Sermons. To view the transcription, click Manage sermon.
Access your transcript
Once you’re in Faithlife Sermons, you can access your transcript and use it for a number of purposes:
Search your sermon transcript
Simply type a keyword and Faithlife Sermons will search the text of all your sermons to pull up relevant results.
You can also search for specific words within a sermon, and the audio will advance to that section as well.
Turn on closed captioning
Click the Closed Captioned icon right of the duration bar, and closed captioning will automatically display in sync with audio on your Faithlife.com and Faithlife TV church group feeds.
Examine your sermon tone
Get an objective view of your sermons.
This tool displays various rhetorical qualities of your sermon–such as emotion and language—so you can see where your weaknesses and strengths lay.
Edit your sermon transcript
Because the transcript is computer-generated, errors may occur.
To edit for accuracy, simply click Edit transcript and double-click a word to edit. Then click Done when you’re finished.
How to get this feature
Automatic sermon transcription opens new possibilities for what you can do with your sermons.
It’s primarily a feature of Faithlife Sermons, so start a free trial or subscribe to access it.
For even more automation, use Proclaim as well. In Proclaim you can automatically record and publish your sermons, so it’s simply a matter of checking a box before you hit Publish. Then you’ll see your transcript ready and waiting for you in Sermons.
You get your first three sermons transcribed free and can purchase transcription credits anytime in Proclaim or Sermons.
