Well, the typical process is to watch Quicktime files with visible timecode and type what is being said in a word processor like Microsoft Word. Pausing the QT to help you catch up when falling behind. And adding timecodes of what is being said at regular intervals.

And that pretty much is how it is done today. We export QT files with timecode and send them off to a transcription service that has people sitting down, listening and typing. There really is no software out there good enough to transcribe the QTs with speech recognition. Some have tried, but it gets comical when accents come into play, or people speak fast or stumble.

Adobe had one that was about 50-60% accurate...which makes it useless, as needing to listen to the QTs and fix those errors makes using them in the first place not very practical.
