Natural Subtitling Engine

The Natural Subtitling Engine is an algorithm we've developed on top of our transcription product which uses millisecond level timestamps and heuristics to generate high quality subtitles. Our automatic subtitle generator allows you to export three types of subtitles 1/ SubRip Cap (.SRT) a very basic subtitling format which can be used on most web publishing platforms (Youtube, Facebook, Vimeo, etc...) 2/ EBU-STL (.STL) a European format used by many broadcasters for subtitling TV programs and 3/ WebVTT (.VTT) a newer method of caption encoding that enables you to edit the color and font of the captioned text.
