The Kapwing subtitler is the web's #1 tool for adding subtitles to your video. Research shows that videos with captions on social media get significantly higher engagement than videos without subtitles. This editor allows you to burn subtitles into video directly, so that the captions appear on any platform the video gets shared to. Kapwing's subtitle editor supports videos of a variety of file formats and sizes, for free.
Upload a video directly to Kapwing from your computer or mobile device. You can also paste a link to a video. This will be the video that will be subtitled either manually or with an automatic API.
Use our AI tools to automatically transcribe your captions or add the text and time them yourself for maximum precision. Once the captions are written, adjust the start and end times to ensure they exactly match the speakers from the video.
Watch, download, and share your subtitled video on social media. Get ready for increased engagement due to the increased accessibility of your video!
To get started, upload pictures, GIFs, and videos or paste a link to import media. Once you upload your content, you can use Kapwing's easy subtitle tool to time out the text to the correct position in your video. By listening to your accurately play and adding text at the right moments, you will be able to accurately position the captions in your video.
Kapwing also has an AI-powered auto-generate feature for subtitles. Create subtitles automatically, then edit the auto-generated subtitles so that they are perfectly matched to the audio in your video. The machine powered transcription is a great way to subtitle a video in half the time.
Kapwing allows you to adjust the font, size, color, and position of the subtitles as well. You can make the subtitles appear higher or lower on your video, or even resize your video so that the subtitles fit exactly where you need. There are a few different styles for subtitles that Kapwing supports: you can add a full background to make your subtitles more readable, or just a text shadow, or no background at all. When everything looks perfect, just click "Create" and your video will quickly process.
Do you already have your subtitles handy in the form of a SRT file? Kapwing also supports adding SRT to video! Just upload your SRT file and Kapwing will do the rest of the work to burn the subtitles directly into your video.
Closed captioning is becoming more and more popular even for viewers who do not face challenges with hearing. Captions are important for today's viewers watching video on phones in crowded or outdoor places, where hearing the audio may not be convenient. The Kapwing subtitle editor allows you to add and edit captions that will appear on your video, wherever it gets posted. The subtitler video tool was designed to make content more accessible, engaging, and compelling no matter what kind of video you’re making.
