How to convert YouTube audio to text?

Use the following method to convert YouTube audio to text and save automatically to a Word file. Make sure you have a working internet on your computer or laptop.
 
I have often used this method. For example, while watching a very interesting tutorial on YouTube and at the same time I have to make notes of this tutorial, I can do it without typing a single word.
