Once the feature has been activated, under each clip and recording there's a transcript tab where you can select your language.

You can edit the transcript as required and low confidence words will be highlighted in orange. You can also seek through your audio using the text editor by ticking "seek and play on word click"
Once you're happy, you can download the transcript as an SRT or WebVTT and if you make any changes that you want to revert, you can either undo or go back to the original transcription under the same tab.
It's also possible to automatically transcribe all clips in your organization, network, or program. Check out this help doc for more information on automatic transcriptions.
Basic vs Premium Transcript Comparison
If you have clean audio, the difference between premium and basic transcription is minimal.
This simple example may help when choosing which engine will work best for you.
"this is an example clip on on the studio and this is the end of that clip"
"This is an example clip on omni studio and this is the end of that clip."
Basic transcription is often very good with minor mistakes such as the one in the above example. Premium transcription is not perfect but it is more consistently accurate.
