Depending on the length of the material, automatic subtitling can take a while. You can close the page while waiting and the workflow continues at the background. 

When the subtitles are ready, they are shown on the right side of the screen in the subtitle panel when opening the Subtitle Editor as shown below.

Notice that the controls at the bottom of the screen change to the Subtitle Editor controls. 

Translate your subtitles into other localised version as explained in this article.

Note: It is also possible to start automatic subtitling without using the Transcript Editor first to create a transcript. Behind the scenes a transcript is first created and then subtitles. 

When the subtitles are ready, the first step is to do a quality control and further refine and edit the subtitles.
