Music Intro Here's how to add captions to your recording. Once you are done editing, you can add captions to your recording by clicking the CC button icon next to the timeline. You have an option to either add captions from a captions file on your computer, use our speech-to-text service to request captions for the audio, or you can start with blank captions and manually add them. We're using a speech to text service from Google so if you choose that option, your audio will be sent to that service for processing. When using speech to text, be sure to use this drop down menu to select the correct language. Let's choose the option to start with blank captions. Hit start and from here, add caption text by clicking this play button in the first section, it will start playing the audio at that point in the video. After a few words are played, you should start inputting text, which will pause the playback. To resume, press the "enter" key and continue. If there are long sections where silence wasn't detected automatically then you may want to manually add some sections to sync up where the text is displayed. To do that, we can go to the exact spot we'd like to show the text then click the "+ Sync Point" option right above the timeline. This will direct our attention to the section of the text that is currently playing. We can place the text cursor right before the text we want to show and then hit the "enter" key, which will split that section, and update the time to sync up accordingly. After you've added captions, you can include them when uploading to Screencast-O-Matic. as closed captions so they can be shown or hidden. You can also add as open captions when saving a video file so the captions will always be displayed below the video. Visit our website to learn about other features.
