Transcripts created by fans, are written versions of canon that was originally presented in audio/visual form. They often resemble scripts, and include all dialogue from the original source material. Many fan transcripts also include descriptions of scenery, actions and music. Recently, these fanworks have been called fan-transcripts or fanscripts.

Transcripts were often created by fans for TV episodes and movies. More recently transcripts for YouTube videos and popular Podcast series have begun appearing. These works are often created for fandoms and source materials where official transcripts are unavailable and provide a valuable resource to fandom.

In the 1990s, several websites hosting transcripts were targeted with Cease & Desist letters from Viacom and Fox crackdowns on fansites.
