  • I have a transcription of my audio in both .vtt and .srt. Is there an easy way to import either file to add subtitles? When I invoke the add caption command, I can only import into the first caption segment.

    If formatted correct the entire file should import. Make sure the timeline duration is correct (the full length needed).

  • Here is a tool I used to create Subtitles/Captions 

    it is called Blurbiz. It is super easy to use, you can easily change your caption fonts, size and color. 

    Hope that helps. if that does not answer your question. 

     

    the only other thing I can think of is Captions as SRT files: which this article will help you with.

    So to sum it all up.

    Screenflow cannot take a video and add the captions from the speech in the video similar to what YouTube does when you upload a video?

    Kerwin That's not an in app feature. That's all done through any number of online cloud services. You can certainly use any of them to generate the SRT file including YouTube and download and add them. That's how most edit programs work.

    Kerwin That couldn't be handled in app. That's why cloud services support that. If we offered that service that would be a lot of backend infrastructure that would compete with many low-cost services already available.

  • I use rev.com for captions. It would be awesome if ScreenFlow allowed for the import of .srt files and not just the export.

    Joselyn Ortiz ScreenFlow are ADA compliant closed captions that don't allow for much editing given the legal compliance standards.

    Since the SRT file needs to be attached to continuous audio (no edit breaks) I find putting in a "dummy" audio track the duration of the piece to work.
