To follow up on my earlier post about UniversalSubtitles.org, I’ve created a screencast demonstrating how to use it.
If you have any trouble watching the above embedded video, you can try going directly to the relevant page at the Universal Subtitles site (where you’ll still be able to watch the video with captions), or to the video’s page on Vimeo (where there will be no captions). If you don’t need captions, I recommend watching the video at Vimeo in HD and with the full-screen option enabled.
It’s worth noting that until you download them, the captions you create at Universal Subtitles are found only on the Universal Subtitles site. However, as I mention at the end of the video, once you’ve downloaded your captions–if you choose to–you can then upload them into YouTube. A full explanation of how to do that is beyond the scope of this screencast, but there are some helpful details about YouTube captions here.
How about you? Have you come up with a good way to caption your videos? Let’s hear about it in the comments!Return to Top
