Change the subtitles

Subtitles are automatically generated. For this reason, spelling mistakes might occur when unfamiliar or not perfectly pronounced words are used (e.g. names of people, places and plants).

You can edit the subtitles in two different ways according to your needs:

Direct change under the video

Suitable if you watch the whole video.

To change the subtitle directly under the video:

  1. Navigate where you want to change the subtitles
  2. Click on the black bar
  3. Write the subtitle you would like to have
Change using the bulk edit mode

Suitable to change reoccurring mistakes due to the automated generation of subtitles.

For instance, if the automatic captions replaced the word ‘third’ with ‘turd’ multiple times, you can search for the word ‘turd’ throughout the captions and change it everywhere with one click.

To access the bulk edit mode:

  1. Click on the CC icon
Caption button

A pop-up window will appear on the right part of your screen,

  1. Click on the magnifying glass
  2. In Find, enter the word you want to substitute
  3. In Replace, insert the word you want to display
Subtitle bulk edit mode
  1. Click on Aa if you want the search query to be case sensitive
  2. Click on the double arrow if you want the replacement to happen only once 
  3. Click on All if you want to change every match in one click
Subtitle bulk edit mode
