Create original captions

Great! You've uploaded your video.

You'll see your video thumbnail, with some information about the video file you've just uploaded. In the middle of the page is an orange Create Captions button.


Click on it, and you'll be presented with a series of options.


Let's explore these options:

Auto Transcribe will automatically generate captions for you. We use speech recognition to generate a transcript, and create timed captions. Make sure to specify the correct language in the dialogue box that follows.

Import transcript allows you to import a Plain Text transcript in a variety of different ways:

  • Automatically (using audio) – uses speech recognition to align your transcript with the movie
  • On line breaks – inserts a caption break wherever there's a line break 
  • On sentence breaks – inserts a caption break wherever there's a sentence break

Upload timed text – if you already have a timed text file (VTT, SRT or TTML), then upload it here.

Blank – this option allows you to start from scratch, individually creating and timing out captions.

Once you've selected one of these options, then go ahead and click on Edit original captions.
