Admins can improve transcription accuracy by adding your team's unique phrases and terms to Rewatch. Common uses cases for custom vocabulary include industry-specific jargon, acronyms, and names of people, products, and companies.

Any phrases you add to your custom vocabulary will be applied to all video transcripts in your channel. Phrases can be one word or multiple words.

Here's how admins can add to their channel's custom vocabulary:

  1. Navigate to the Admin console in the bottom left corner.

  2. Select Transcription settings in the lefthand sidebar.

  3. Under Custom vocabulary, add your word or phrase.
