With iCaption, creating video subtitles or captions from scratch is extremely easy, even without prior experience in subtitle or transcript creation. Its simple-to-use interface utilizes timeline based editing. The soft subtitle formats currently supported are SubRip and YouTube.
What are soft subtitles? Soft sub files are stored separately from the video file. They are called soft, because they are not hard-encoded into each video frame; they are rendered in real-time as you play the video. Most modern video players support soft subs and can manage multiple files for quick and easy swapping of languages.
