Simply click the Save button and your new styles will be added to the “Select a Style” menu. You can always edit this saved style or create a new one. Feel free to try out a few styles until you find that perfect look for your video captions.

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 transcript editor to make changes, add new caption breaks, or change the timing of your captions.
