    I think maybe there is a way to download these.

    Maybe try this:

    TEXT GUIDE: GET CLOSED CAPTION [CC] TEXT WITHOUT TYPING IT BY HAND
    1. Firebug is a lightweight browser plug in that’s a MUST if you’re a web analyst. It allows you to easily perform a number of technical debugging actions on HTML, DOM elements and live editing of CSS properties.
    2. It also helps you get the transcript for your YouTube videos.
    3. Download the free add on here: Firebug
    4. Install Firebug and restart your browser
    5. Head over to YouTube and open the video with the transcript you want to download.
    6. Open Firebug: Tools -> Web Developer -> Firebug -> Open Firebug
    7. Go to “Net” in the Firebug tab
    8. If disabled, click on the button to enable it
    9. Refresh your browser
    10. Press the closed caption [CC] button located in the bottom right hand corner of your video
    11. In the Firebug search bar (top right of the Firebug screen), type ‘timedtext’ (no quotes)
    12. Locate the 2nd instance of ‘get timedtext’
    13. Right click on the ‘get timedtext’ and open in a new window
    14. Your video transcript will be in the new browser. You may have to do some decoding and re scripting, as YouTube voice recognition greatly depends on the quality of your audio. However, this is a huge time saver from writing the whole thing out!

    I must say that today I have learned a very interesting thing. Being able to convert the youtube video to the text format. For sure it is something that I can brag of and even use in different ways. I will late in the day be able to test the whole process that has been shared by our friend. I am looking forward to a scenaro where i get the texts with much ease. It is good that you have been able to share with us the information.
