Get captions/subtitles on your videos

Pictory offers an "Edit Videos Using Text" use case that enables users to transcribe their video and audio files quickly and easily, adding captions automatically in under one minute. With this feature, users no longer have to worry about manually transcribing lengthy audio or video content into written text.

On Pictory, the transcription hours and video size allocated to each user is dependent on the plan they are currently on as explained in the table below.

You can read through the subtitles and make any edits that you feel are necessary to ensure that the text shown in the caption matches the speaker's words. You can also highlight blocks of text to create a highlight video, and you can also change the style of your subtitles from the dozens of templates available on the website to give them a customized look.

Once you’re done transcribing your videos, you can easily download your videos for use. In addition to downloading the video, users can also download the associated captions/subtitles in a variety of formats including .txt, .srt, and .vtt. This makes it even easier to access the subtitles without having to download the video itself.

Export written transcripts of your video or audio files

To do this, click on the download icon next to "Auto Highlight" and choose the format you want your subtitles file to be downloaded in from the drop down menu. It’s that simple and easy.

Overall, video transcription on Pictory is a great way to save time and effort when editing videos so you can spend your time and energy on more important tasks. Interested? Sign up to Pictory today to start using our intuitive video creation and editing tool.
