2. Choose A Font (Or Add Your Own)

When you get to the Text Styles menu and select Captions, the first option you'll have is to choose a font style. You're welcome to choose from the extensive list available. Or you can upload your own custom font! To do this, just scroll down in the Text Styles menu until you get to the Custom Fonts section. Here, you can easily upload your own font.

3. Style Your Captions

After you've selected your font, there are plenty of other caption styling features that you can adjust. These include:

  • Font color
  • Font size
  • Font weight

  • Positioning
  • And more!

4. Edit Your Captions

Even though our speech-to-text technology may seem like magic, it’s not infallible. So make sure you review the subtitles on your video for inaccuracies. It’s easy — just use the Text Editor (top option on the right-hand menu) to make changes, add new caption breaks, or change the timing of your captions.

5. Download Your New Video

Just select the download button in the upper-right hand corner to render your new video and download it to your computer or device.
