Note: It is also possible to start automatic subtitling without using the Transcriber application. Behind the scenes, this first creates a transcript in the Transcriber application and then creates subtitles out of those. Because automatic speech recognition isn’t flawless, and the Transcriber is better suited to correct these mistakes, we advise you to always use the Transcriber first, and only afterwards generate subtitles.
2. Edit existing subtitles
2.1 Change appearance and disappearance time
2.2 Change the subtitle position (top / bottom region)
By default, the subtitle is rendered in the bottom region. As an alternative, the subtitle can be rendered in the ‘top region’ by clicking the region button. The icon of the button will change, and the subtitle shown over the video will change its position to something like the example shown below:
2.3 Change the text colour
2.4 Delete a subtitle
2.5 Subtitle warnings
2.5.2 Subtitle overlap
3. Subtitling Status
3.1 Mark subtitles completed
3.2 Reset subtitles
If for any reason you want to restart your subtitling work, click the small arrow button next to ‘mark complete’ and you’ll be presented with a menu like below. Click ‘Delete Subtitles’. Note that this will remove all your work and reset the subtitling status to ‘not yet started’.
At the top right corner of the application, you’ll find the help buttons and some toggles to show or hide panes in the application.
