Transcripts for Return/Hope/Deceived/Sacrifice/Betrayed cinematics?

I've seen the cinematics 100 times over, it feels like. However, I'm deaf and have no idea what the dialogue in any of them is. I didn't even know there was dialogue in them until about 2017 and I've been playing since the very beginning (aside from the Return trailer where they obviously talk to each other).

My question is: is there anywhere where transcripts for them exist? I've Googled and searched and have come up with nothing, so far. And Bioware doesn't seem to care at all about accessibility and the possibility that people like me are playing, it seems.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's really sad that these cinematics don't have basic subtitle support. If you want, I can spend the next little while writing up the transcripts though.

That'd be awesome. Thanks so much.

Okay, here is my rough attempt to offer some transcripts. If there is anything I can do to make them more accessible please let me know.

WOW, this is beyond awesome! I can't thank you enough! And I love how you included the sound effects. That helps a lot

Thank you so much! That was such a nice thing to do! I'm hard of hearing rather than deaf, so I've been able to catch most of the dialogue in the trailers, but I've always been surprised that Bioware and Blur didn't add optional subtitles to the official trailers.

However, I just wanted to add that there are some copies of the trailers on YouTube that do include some pretty good captions if you choose the "cc" option. Your transcript is still very helpful, though--for once thing, it includes sound effects, which the copies I linked to don't.

Thanks again for helping to make the trailers more accessible!

Ooh, it's good to hear some users have re-uploaded the trailers with CC.

I'm fortunate in not needing the transcripts myself, but that's a good thing to have done, and it looks like you did a good job.
