Another option is to use DIY Captions <https://www.diycaptions.com/>
Simply paste the YouTube URL in the "Paste a YouTube URL" edit field on the

You can then copy your edited transcript, paste back into YouTube's
subtitle editor, and set the timings.
Note: DIY Captions also has a captions editor with many useful shortcuts,
yet there were accessibility issues last I checked.
