I know the capability to save the transcripts on the Pixel relies on using the app - you can save up to three days afterwards, but I have not yet found a way to save from Chrome.

Thank you for sharing, Cath!

Now - a question about this - is there a way to save the captions as a file after the fact? This way it could be used as an initial transcript to be edited and posted with the media later?

I had been using Live Caption via my Pixel, and I am glad to learn that it is now available in any Chrome deployment. Find the Live Caption setting under Chrome > Settings > Advanced > Accessibility > Live Caption. The audio does not need to be in a video
The option to customize the caption size and appearance is available as well. According to Google, this will even work when the content is muted or being played offline.

Best regards,
