Modern videos need subtitles. But adding captions manually has always been frustrating and time-intensive. Magic Subtitles by Kapwing fixes that for good. Our automatic subtitle generator uses artificial intelligence to detect what a subject is saying and turns that speech into word-by-word subtitles with unmatched accuracy—you'll rarely have to make corrections.
Just upload your video or audio file and Kapwing will instantly create word-by-word subtitles and that comes complete with a fully editable transcript. Save hours of time creating content and ensure everything video you make is accessible and engaging.
Posting on social media? Make your content social-ready with our AI-enhanced video resizer to instantly change the dimensions for any social platform. Then, drag and drop your video subtitles to fit your video perfectly and avoid overlapping or accidentally hiding on screen
Once your AI-generated subtitles are ready, you can edit them directly, then permanently embed your subtitles into videos or download the captions in popular formats like TXT, VTT, or an SRT file. Customize every detail: colors, fonts, backgrounds, location on screen, and animated effects are all easily changed with Kapwing's AI-powered subtitles. You can even add a full Brand Kit with custom fonts to your account so your subtitles will always stay on-brand.
Kapwing's AI subtitles are so accurate they double as a transcript generator and translator. Convert video to text and then translate your video to over 60+ languages, including English, Spanish, and Russian. Need to generate subtitles for free? The free version of Kapwing’s subtitle generator allows for up to 10 minutes of AI subtitles per month, and pricing for our Pro plan is affordable if you need more.
Upload a video to the Kapwing editor from any device. Or, drag and drop a video from your desktop. Your video must include sound.
Click on 'Subtitles' on the left-hand side of the editor. Then select the 'Auto subtitles' option that appears. Our subtitle maker will add AI-generated captions to your videos instantly. Once they've been added, you can edit the text, font, design, location, and more.
Select the 'Export Project' option from the top-right of the screen to hardcode your subtitles into your video and download the final video file. Or, click on the download icon above the subtitle editor to get the transcript in formats like SRT, VTT, and TXT.
Our AI-powered subtitle tools instantly transcribe your videos. Your transcript is then added to your video as word-by-word subtitles, which can be edited directly or downloaded to popular file formats. Why do we care so much about fast subtitles and video captions? Because we know you're moving fast—you have content to create and publish. Accessibility is a priority for you and across all social media platforms, but you can't spend idle time manually editing subtitles.
Kapwing's AI subtitles will dramatically speed up the time you spend creating subtitles. In seconds, we’ll begin transcribing your video into a ready-to-use transcript you can edit directly to make perfect. Save hours of time each week and ensure all of your videos are accessible and social-ready. Our tool is so fast, you may never have to send or publish a video without subtitles again. Apply AI subtitles to training videos, social media, content on your YouTube channel, or even personalized one-to-one messages.
Kapwing's AI subtitles allow for a near-limitless amount of one-click customization options so your video captions never look bland. Edit colors, sizes, choose between hundreds of fonts (or upload your own), adjust the background and opacity, and even apply animated effects like word-by-word paint and highlights as your subtitles are read.
Adjust the smallest details like line height and padding of your subtitle backgrounds. And of course, you can directly edit the text of your AI-generated subtitles to make small corrections or better match the flow of your video. Or, add your Brand Kit so your preferred color palette and fonts are ready to go, whether you’re a professional content creator or in-house creative team. Need to add text to a video that's not a caption? Kapwing can handle that, too.
