Transcript screenshot

Each video on LinkedIn Learning is accompanied by a transcript, which is located adjacent to the video on the middle tab. As you watch the video the transcipt auto-scrolls and highlights the text in time with the audio. 

The transcript also contains clickable links which jump the video to that particular place; so you can easily navigate within the content, rewatch something you missed, or skip ahead.
