Record, edit, and create all in one place

Make your own voice-overs for any video without TikTok. There’s no doubt TikTok has grown the popularity of voice-overs, narrations, and even text-to-speech. There is one problem: most social media platforms and in-app video editors have a time limit of 3 to 10 minutes.

With Kapwing’s voice recorder, you can record a voice-over without having to worry about a time limit or the timing of your voice on top of your video. Record a voice-over while watching your video over, so you get the video timing perfectly aligned with your narration.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
