Use Cases

Change extension of TXT file to SRT
In most cases your file is already in the SRT file format. All that must be done is change it's extension from .txt to .srt. This tool does that and automatically downloads the output as a .srt file. You can use this subtitle file with a video player of your choice.
Introduce timestamps in plain text subtitle
In this case all you have are lines of subtitles with no timestamp information whatsoever. The tool does it's best to introduce timestamps for each line of lyrics by considering the length of the line, how many words & characters are in it and the Start/End time you provide.
Language Conversion
Use this to convert each line of your subtitles from one language to another.


SRT is a subtitle file format generated by the SubRip software. A time range (start to end) precedes each line of subtitle. Video players show the subtitle on the screen when the video is within this period.

It would great to include an optional timing setting for this tools per line, and without the application to decide the timing per line (which I do not understand the settings currently).
Could it be advised?

Thank you for this tool! It is very helpful. I paid for a transcription service and they did not provide the correct output for the file! You are a game-changer!!! Thanks a million!

Awesome tool, but... the generated timecodes were bad -- start times are later than end times, and some lengths are zero. So I was able to generate a file for my 40 minute video, but ended up spending several hours manually changing the timecodes. I think the fix is probably pretty minor on the code side, so if you can fix whatever the bug is, this tool will be a serious game changer. Hopefully it'll be updated in time for my next vid :) Thanks!
