=================== text video ====================

Hey, this is Margherita with Happy Scribe,

and today I’m going to show you how
you can add subtitles in Camtasia.

So on your open project, in the left
side bar, fin ‘Audio Effects’.

If you don’t see it there, click on ‘More’.

When you’re in audio effects,

you’ll see the effect ‘Captions’ click
it and drag it to your timeline

on top of the clips you’d like to subtitle.

A separate timeline on the top
with an audio map will appear.

They will show up divided as well.

This is where you’ll
manually add your captions.

You’ll be able to change duration
and customize to an extent.

Now, as you can probably tell, manually

typing down your captions will be very
time consuming and inefficient.

Especially if you have quite
a long video to subtitle ahead.

But thankfully, there’s actually
an easier way to subtitle your videos.

So if you’d like to know how

to automatically add subtitles
to your videos, keep on watching.

OK, so you’re going to want to finish
editing your entire project

without subtitles. Then, export it
how you usually would.

Once that’s done,
you’re going to head over to your

preferred browser and enter

link will also be in the
description below, as always.

Once you’re here,
click on ‘Get Started’ or ‘Log in’.

If you don’t have an account set up

on Happy Scribe yet,
you can very easily create an account,

which will only take a few
seconds to make.

Once you’re in your Happy Scribe

‘My Dashboard’, select ‘Upload
a new file’ then ‘Subtitles’.

Make sure that your video’s audio is
of decent quality to have the best outcome

possible on your subtitles. To select
the file that you want to import from,

you can choose from many different choices
or you can easily just drag and drop.

Go ahead and select
the language that is spoken.

The default service will be machine generated,

but you can also select
human made for more accurate service.

Then when your file is done
uploading click ‘Submit’.

Depending on how long your video is,

this processing should only
take a couple of minutes.

When your file is done, click on ‘Open’.
Then we have our subtitled file.

Go ahead and playback to go through your
video and look out for any minor mistakes.

You can also customize how you like your

subtitles to look like if you like
an outline, change the color of your

fonts, including the position of where
you’d like your captions to be.

You can also dive into subtitle limits,
choosing the maximum number of lines,

maximum characters per line or
the minimum gap between subtitles.

When you’re fully done correcting or

customizing your subtitles to your liking,
you’re now ready to download.

Choose whether you’d like your subtitles
embedded or download as a separate SRT file.

Choosing the second option, though,
unfortunately won’t save your

customization edits, but only
takes the text into account.

You might choose this option if you’d like

to upload your own closed
captions on YouTube, for example.

And this is how you automatically
subtitle your videos using Happy Scribe.
