Building your own broadcast channel has never been easier! But how do you create professional subtitles to improve the accessibility of your content catalog?

We give you a reliable and productive solution to do so.

Why add subtitles to your Uscreen content?

Uscreen is popular among video professionals who can create their own distribution channel and make a living from their content. With features like online streaming, sales pages and marketing automation, you can make money from your streaming content.

As you can see, it’s pretty interesting. Here’s a step-by-step method to do just that.

Uscreen subtitle: the different ways to do it

Uscreen doesn’t provide a lot of subtitling options for your hosted and VOD videos. But the video player still supports VTT files, and it is easy to add them. You can do it in three different ways:

For the first option, we warn you, this is a complicated method. Transcription requires a lot of time and very specific skills, which are those of professional transcriptionists. The difficulty of producing quality subtitles should not be underestimated, as there are a number of rules and standards that must be respected.

For the second option, automatic subtitling solutions can greatly facilitate the work, but still require human intervention.

For the third option, subtitling experts can take care of your video projects with a guaranteed quality result. Here we present our professional subtitling solution, Checksub, which combines the advantage of an automatic generator with the collaboration of experts.
