This page is intended to support you in creating or editing caption files on your own. Please contact email@example.com with any questions or if you would like to schedule a training.
There are 3 steps to creating captions: transcribing the content, breaking it into caption blocks, and aligning the caption blocks to the video. A variety of software programs can help with each step in this process.
Throughout this process, you should review the captions for completeness, accuracy, synchronicity, and placement.
Once you create your caption file, you should review it for quality. A short summary of quality issues to check for is listed below. Please reference the Captioning Quality Guidelines for a more extensive list.
If you are creating your captions in a separate software from the media player they will be displayed in, you will need to save or export your captions from the caption editor software so that they can be uploaded to the destination media repository.
Captioning files are typically saved with one of the following extensions: .srt, .vtt, .sbv, .dfxp, .sami, or .ttml. SRT files are the simplest format, and are able to easily be edited by anyone using a text editor. However, they do not support features like vertical caption placement or text markup. If those features are required, VTT is recommended for ease of editing.
If you create your captions in a captioning editor like YouTube or Amara, you can export your file to a variety of caption formats which can then be uploaded to Kaltura, Vimeo, or any other player that accepts standard caption formats.
If you would like to work with a group to create a caption file, there are a few ways to do it.
