Distributing to KKBOX is more than just acquiring a wider audience and heard by more people. We have partnered up with KKBOX to allow Firstory users to get their transcripts generated on KKBOX.

With the KKBOX Transcript function, your show can also be searched for and found to drive more traffic!

Other FAQs:

  1. If I update the audio file, would I need to reapply for a new transcript?

    If the changed portion only consists of a minor detail or segment, we recommend you to directly edit the transcript from KKBOX for Podcasters. If a major part or the entire audio file was changed, we recommend you to delete the old transcript and reapply for a new one.

  2. Can I edit transcripts from Firstory Studio?

    Direct editing from Firstory Studio is currently not supported (You'll have to edit from KKBOX for Podcasters). However, the published transcript will be shown on Firstory Player and your podcast's personal website.

  3. Can I copy the transcript onto my personal blog?

    Sure can! When using the transcript on other places, it is best practice to include a line for attribution such as:

    "This transcript was provided by KKBOX" and attach the KKBOX link to your show!
