Hi, Adam!

Amara.org provides a free caption editor for online videos. You just need
to create an account and have the video's URL to get started.

> Hello wise list-ers!


> A professor of ours is showing a YouTube video they don’t own and that

> doesn’t have accurate captioning. We are currently working on a transcript

> but I definitely want to see if there is any way we can add captions to the

> video since that is way better than a print-out transcript. I reached out

> to the video’s poster to ask that they enable community captioning, but

> haven’t heard back yet. 3PlayMedia can give me access to a Caption Plugin

> that lets me do exactly this, but that costs however much they charge for a

> Pro account with them and being a private university we are looking to go

> as cheap as humanly possible.


> Any ideas/leads?


> Best,
