Our English subtitles are delivered in our interactive captions editor.
We ensure 99%+ accuracy on all video captions, but sometimes it's necessary to adjust names of speakers on the video or change the timing of the captions for different audiences. The captions editor helps you do that directly in the file once it's in your email. There's also no limit to how many teammates or colleagues you can share the subtitle file with. There's no need to create another Rev account to download, edit or view the video subtitles.
