Comment (by casiepa):

 @mor10 There is a 4th option now
 >The obvious question is "where are these transcripts going to come from"?
 Three options:
 >1.Edited text dumps from CART captioning during events
 >2.Edited dumps from volunteer video captions
 >3.Volunteer text transcripts
 We (WPTV moderators) started testing YouTube and AWS Transcribe, so a 4th
 option is needed:
 4. Automated transcription after the event.

 Where categories 2 and 3 could be seen as 'almost ready to publish',
 categories 1 and 4 would need moderator review or at least have a clear
 indication that those have not been reviewed. To be decided if those
 become visible immediately or not.

 As the transcription for a video should be only 1 (in the original
 language of the video), it could be just a txt file uploaded in the media
 library that gets attached to the post that holds the video. This would
 allow moderators to attach/detach in case there is a newer (e.g. reviewed)

 Adding the transcript next to the video as show/hide collapsible field,
 but fully available to search engines should indeed help to get people
 reach the correct videos.
