Tue Nov 23 2021


In this tutorial, Myra Roldan shows two different ways you can create subtitles for videos. You may be creating more videos for your learning solutions, training needs, or performance support tools these days, and it’s important to keep inclusion in mind. Adding subtitles is a great way to ensure you are providing viewers with accessible and inclusive content. Check out this video to learn more about 1) how to create SRT files and 2) how to utilize artificial intelligence apps, like Otter, that automatically transcribe subtitles for you, whether you are on a PC or MAC device. You’ll also discover what burned in captions are, and why they are great to use with platforms that don’t support subtitles yet.
