The first thing to do is of course to create a new project. To get more details about this process, follow the first part of the "Making a transcript of your favourite TV series with VisualSubSync" tutorial.
So here we are, our new project is created :
It's now time to load our transcript. For that we use the Edit>Text pipe>Load text pipe… menu.
You can load raw text file or rtf files. Here we choose a raw text file :
Ok, the text pipe is loaded, we are now ready for the synchronization :
First we select the subtitle in the WAV display part. (1)

When you add a subtitle from the text pipe you have different auto-something options :
Something else important to notice is that VisualSubSync works on a copy of the transcript saved at the same place as the project. The script is saved under the name projectname.vssscript
