Using Universal Subtitles
You can add captions manually to your videos by using “Universal Subtitles editor”. This editor will generate a caption file in "SRT" format, a text file with timing. You can use this caption file to provide subtitles to videos hosted at YouTube, Vimeo or any other media services.
TIP: Save time by generating a caption file automatically using YouTube Auto-captioning tool. It does a remarkable job , however, you may need to correct the file. After downloading a 'machine-generated' caption file with YouTube, upload it to Universal Subtitles to modify the caption file.
