creating transcripts from timed text files

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for insights on whether it's possible to create transcripts from timed text files. I have good, individually reviewed closed caption files. Just need to take the next step to good transcripts. My team feels like this is a totally manual process. Taking the reviewed text from the caption files, taking the timing out, removing the timing breaks, and producing a readable transcript.

I'm curious if there is any technology, service, or otherwise that can work with a part of this process? Even if editorial is required in the end, I'd like to believe there is something that might help in the beginning.

Thanks for your insight.
