Welcome to closed captioning for beginners. In this course you'll learn how to create subtitles and closed captioning for video. We'll start by teaching you the different ways you can transcribe your video by converting the audio to text.

Part 2

Audio & Video Transcription

In this video we're going to walk you through how to transcribe your video. Transcription is the process of taking the audio and converting it to text. This can be done manually by a person, or automatically using the power of AI.

Part 3

Timing & Sync | Caption Spotting

Spotting is the step in your closed caption workflow where you assign timecodes to the start and end of each caption event. This process is also known as cueing, time coding, or timing. There are many ways to achieve the same result. Our goal is to have the captions appear on screen in sync with the audio.
