Free English Subtitles Generator
Is there a way to add free English subtitles to your videos? In this blog, you are going to know the possible ways to add subtitles for free to your videos.
In the era of better visual experience, adding subtitles to your videos is another golden key to unlocking better relationships with your viewers.
Facebook, Instagram as well as YouTube have made the task a lot easier with the auto-generate feature. All you have to do is upload the video, click edit, open video options and finally click on generate captions.
While they will auto-generate your subtitles, the captions will not be as accurate as the subtitles that are generated by an editing software.
I understand that you might not want to invest heavily in software at this stage. Therefore, I have curated an exhaustive list that will guide you to effectively add subtitles to your videos, that too for free!
WHAT ARE ENGLISH SUBTITLES?
The subtitle, also known as the caption, is the written text derived from the audio part of the video. It can be generated for a screenplay, movie, television show, YouTube videos, Instagram reels or Facebook videos.
Don’t confuse this caption with the caption that you write on Instagram. That’s entirely different!
The caption we are touching upon is linked with subtitles. Displayed at the bottom of the screen, it is popularly also referred to as 'closed captions' or 'CC' on YouTube. They contribute intensively not only to improving ranking on search engines but also provide a proper understanding of the content.
You must be having your viewers from all over the world. Everyone knows how different nations have varied ways of speaking and pronouncing words. To avoid any confusion and broaden your accessibility, adding a text description at the bottom of the screen is crucial.
HOW CAN YOU GENERATE ENGLISH SUBTITLES FOR YOUR VIDEO?
Viewers on social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram have always expressed a preference for video content. Since the time reels have been introduced on Instagram, it has in fact slightly reduced the time taken to make your content reach your target audiences.
In fact, the majority of most-viewed videos have subtitles. Hence, it won’t be wrong to say that subtitles have a significant influence on the viewers' experience.
Below mentioned are the ways you can use to add subtitles to your videos. I've gone a step further and added benefits and consequences in all mentioned options:
In conclusion, the cheapest option is to let Facebook and Instagram auto-generate captions for you. Even if LinkedIn allowed you to auto-generate captions (which currently it doesn’t), the only remaining issue will be that the current interface will not allow you to download your videos.
Veed has good editing capabilities. If you are considering video as the main form of marketing, try a free version of Rey and eventually take a call on the paid version.
If you are already using InShot for filtering and cropping, you must try out Zubtitle in order to transcribe your audios to text.
Finally, explore BIGVU only if you need a teleprompter as well as a video editing app.
I hope this guide will come in handy. Continue to learn and explore!
