WordPress has added a feature to be able to subtitle all its videos. And even those that are already present on your site and all thanks to the subtitle file! Capté offers you to take a closer look at this so that you too know how to add subtitles on WordPress.

Subtitle files

There are several kinds of subtitle files: .srt.sub... The most famous are the .sub and .srt which is used for subtitling DVD movies. 

The subtitle files are external files that are added to the videos. They allow either to integrate directly the subtitles in a video or to make Closed Captions (CC), i.e. to be able to give the audience the possibility to activate or deactivate subtitling at any time and to be able to select the subtitle track. Thusyou can add several different .srt files to the same video. This is what makes it possible, for example, to offer several languages and thus to make your video content accessible to all.

How to create a .srt file

Creating a .srt file is child's play thanks to Capté! Indeed, you just have to upload your video on app.getcapte.com. Artificial intelligence automatically transcribes the audio into subtitles. Then it's your turn to change any small mistakes that may have been made. Once you are satisfied with the transcription you can proceed to the export. Just click on the "File .srt" button and you're done.
