How do I add an SRT captions file to a Camtasia project? (PC version)
You will learn how to add an SRT timed text captions file to your Camtasia project, so that your video will have closed captions. Captions can be incredibly useful for a variety of users, such as students who are blind, have low vision, are in a sound sensitive environment (like offices or libraries), are viewing a video that is not in their native language, are viewing a video with relatively poor sound quality (or with a loud background music track or noise), are not used to the accent of the speaker, are learning new technical terminology, etc. (View these survey results to learn more about why users like subtitles/captions.)
Follow these steps after you have already created your Camtasia video project and after you have an SRT file (perhaps from the Disability Support Services office).
8. Make sure that 'ADA compliant' is highlighted to ensure that the captions are the proper size.
10. The video now has captions.
You have now learned how to insert an SRT timed text captions file into your Camtasia project, so that your video will have closed captions.
