If you work on a regular basis with the "owner" of the voice I can recommend Nuance's Dragon it offers very accurate speech to text with very few errors but it needs some "calibration" to a specific voice. So if you can get your actor/narrator to read the calibration text you will have an easy time making transcripts and subtitles (though subs will require ...

We use a service called 3playmedia to do our subtitling. It's not free, but it's pretty cheap, considering the amount of work it saves - it's certainly cheaper than paying post production staff to do it. I'm not affiliated with them, just a happy customer.

YouTube has several captioning options. At one time they had free computer generated captions which you could then download the results in a text file. YouTube currently provides this list of caption software and services.

This can also be accomplished if you have VirtualDubMod and a TextSub provider installed such as VobSub or VSFilter. To use VobSub, during installation you must select the Plugins -> TextSub for VirtualDub and Avisynth option. To use VSFilter, you must locate the VSFilter.dll file in the installation directory and copy it to the plugins folder with the ...

I've just discovered Subler, which makes it super easy to add subtitles to an existing m4v file, and then burn that.

In that case Adobe After Effects can do this easily, which probably also produced the effect in the video. It's actually the only software where I know you can do this without too much manual labor. Other products usually only offer a timer effect which would be tedious to use for these kind of things. Though if you want to do this based on just a single ...

A player doesn't have to acknowledge the position of subtitles. So a user could re-position them if he wanted to. Thats actually the standard way of doing it. What you have there is a custom tag. The .srt format doesn't include any position data for the subtitles. Some players can recognize this sort of custom data and use it but you can't expect that a ...

This is not possible with Premiere without plugins and I don't know of any that would do this. I recommend doing this outside of premiere like explained in this question: Render srt subtitles to video?

Check out Derivative's TouchDesigner. Its a real-time compositing and rendering software that we use in our studios. It's used worldwide for really complex projects, so you could easily make a little patch in that where you could make 2 UI buttons and link those to some incrementing numbers, then composite the numbers onto the video and record it. Then you ...

Have you ever heard the expression: 'Good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.'? A good and fast way would be to hire a professional post-production studio capable of layering over the video a scorebdoard graphic, and layering over the graphic a character-generator input. You sit in the chair behind the editor and tell him what scores to input and when. The new ...

Have you tried WebVTT for marking up the subtitles? http://www.w3.org/community/texttracks/2012/08/23/webvtt-support-in-browsers/ http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Graphics/CaptionMaker/ is a surprisingly good tool for making captions. You could also cheat a bit and use Youtube's pretty good voice recognition to perhaps save time transcribing.

Ordinarily, I'd create an Adobe AIR or AIR-for-iOS app to solve this problem. You'd just sychronize your captions to cue points in the video and make 'em visible or invisible with a programmed-in button. You could easily have multiple languages in this way. Are iTunes podcasts just flat-out mp4 movies?

In Vegas you can make a default text or preset by using the save preset feature. For instance you may add a text at the end of all your movies that looks like this: Joe Blow Productions Copyright Joe Blow 2014 After you make this text, give the text title a unique name "Joe Blow", then click the save preset button just to the right of the title ...

Vegas' text capabilities are rather limited. It allows you to insert captions only one by one. There is an extension for Vegas Pro, which is called Vegasaur. It contains Text Generation Wizard that can import text from subtitle files (srt, sub etc.) or just from the Clipboard http://vegasaur.com/Vegasaur
