You can simply do the job with external programs and let them work its magic. You don’t need to worry about the complicated processes that come with.
Transcripts are a simple way of creating captions. They only contain the text of what is said in the video. You can enter a transcript directly in your video or follow the steps below to create a transcript file.

Transcripts work best with videos that are less than an hour long with good sound quality and clear speech. The transcript file should be in the same language as the dialogue in the video. After you've created your file, follow the instructions to upload it to your video.

Format your transcript file
Type the text of what was said in your video and save it as a plain text file (.txt). You can convert other formats (like Microsoft Word, HTML) into a plain text file or you can use native programs on your computer like Notepad.

To get the best results, use these formatting tips:

To force the start of a new caption, use a blank line.
To designate background idm crack from crackred sounds, use square brackets. For example, [music] or [laughter].
Add >> to identify speakers or change of speaker.
Here's an example of what your transcript file might look like:

>> ALICE: Hi, my name is Alice Miller and this is John Brown

>> JOHN: and we're the owners of Miller Bakery.

>> ALICE: Today we'll be teaching you how to make
our famous chocolate chip cookies!
