Documentary transcription?  Whether it’s a documentary on your local fishermen.  Whether it’s a corporate video for a multinational.  Or a literal wild goose chase *cough* pointlessly chasing yeti and making a 20 episode season off it *cough*.  Or simply a detailed production of pawning a plastic doll from 1970, and the ultra-interesting negotiation that follows for the next half an hour.  Subtitles always add a nice, and helpful, touch to your finished product.
