You need to simply add new media by uploading your project >> "Add New". Then once it is uploaded you click on the title of the media and it will take you to an editing page. From here. You will see a drop down menu choice under the title "Actions" in which you may choose the option to "+Order Captions ". It will take approximately 3 times the length of you media to transcribe (ie 5 min film will take 15 mins) you will note that the status will change from pending to in progress to complete. Once completed you can click on the world "complete" and it will take you to the transcript which you can listen to the media while reading along and make edits to the text. When you are finished hit "save and approve"(again this take a couple of mins to process the resave.) Now go back to the page with "Action" or to the initial page with your media. See the tab select "Attach" then the download arrow to download a written transcript. Or "Share" tab to be able to export a link to the media with captioning. .
