Natural Subtitling Engine
The Natural Subtitling Engine is an algorithm we've developed on top of our transcription product which uses millisecond-level timestamps and heuristics to generate high-quality subtitles.
Happy Scribe provides two types of subtitles:
SubRip Cap (.SRT) is a very basic subtitling format that can be used on most web publishing platforms (Youtube, Facebook, Vimeo, etc...)
EBU-STL (.STL) is a European format used by many broadcasters for subtitling TV programs.
