Note: Captions is only available on our Pro Plan. If you are on a free or solo plan, you will still be able to try out the Captions feature to see how it works. However, you will need to upgrade to a Pro Plan to export and download your videos.


Typito lets you create captions using three ways:

  1. Create Captions Automatically: Learn how

  2. Uploading an SRT file: Learn how

  3. Creating captions manually by manually transcribing



If your video has good quality audio and audible voice, you should definitely try out the Automatic speech-to-text capability (it's pretty accurate!). In case your audio is distorted in places, or if you don't have an SRT file or want to add subtitles in a language other than English, you might want to try adding captions manually.



Let's learn how to add captions manually to your project, step by step. 



TABLE OF CONTENTS


Step 1: Upload your video to Typito. 

Click 'Captions' in the left panel. And click “Add Captions.”


If this is your first time using the Captions tool on Typito, there’s a quick video tutorial to help you out.



Step 2: Choose Add Manually to transcribe your video. 



Step 3: Choose the language you want to generate the subtitles in. 

If you’re only looking to add subtitles, then keep the original language and the caption language the same.



Note: You can also add subtitles in another language. If you’re looking to add translated subtitles, choose the original language and then choose the language you want to add subtitles in.




Step 4. Choose a theme for your captions. 

Don’t worry about the font or colors, you can always change these in the next steps. Use the preview to ensure that the theme you select doesn't distract from the viewing experience.



Step 5: Start typing your captions. 



Step 6: Click the  “Style” tab to style your captions




That's it; you are all set. I hope this helps. Have fun captioning with Typito!
