They had quite a few open source free tools for you to use on nine. There's the H e sub The subtitle Rocha The subtitle. Edit all these results Where's you can download Creedy from the Net and the last Miss Kemp Tasia. Sometimes I like to use this one. So I will also show you how to do close captions with Kemp. Tasia, all these Softwares will have thes things in common. In one area you can upload the video and then this is the audio that you'll see. And here you will see the seconds where it begins, where ends and this box is for you to type in the text for some videos. You may not have the transcription on hand so you might want to do your own subtitles with a video in front of you. I've tried this and it works perfect. In all the Softwares you'll see the subtitles with the numbers written here, the starting point, the ending point and also the text itself. Here you see a slash meeting fat there to realize in the subtitles A lot of the YouTube's have to time format. I don't quite let the true life format so I usually correct it later on a web. Other videos shown you how to make this correction for this video. I just want to show you that all these Softwares have all these things in common. This one is the subtitle Workshop is a video panel here on top, on the left. Him input the frame per second. I usually like this. Set it at 29 97 and down here the subtitles, the numbers the time when the tax begins, the time with attacks ends. And this is the situation at the bottom hand your type in the text. I use this one quite a lot. It's user friendly and then later all my lines nice and short. This one is Subtitle Edit again. You see the same features that video is down here. The subtitles Up here the line numbers the starting time to any time duration and the text and the text typed in here in the middle you can do unbreak auto brake, but you should I just like it. One line So it's up to you. Different people prefer different things. And the format I like this said it at sub rip. And finally, this is the camp Tasia you see at caption hair the videos. Here. You type the caption in this box the time it's written here. And this show up in your time lying here. So watch the next set of videos and I will show you one by one how to use them easily. All right. I hope you have enjoyed this video and that you know that there are a lot of resources you can use. You don't have to use all of them. I just want to provide two or three more software.
