How it Works?

By selecting how long you want each caption to appear on screen for, and adding beginning and end points for each line of text it’s relatively easy to get a video captioned and ready for the Intertubes. Then, you are required to manually export the captions, and then upload them to your “Captions and Subtitles” page on YouTube.
