Getting Started with Auto Captions

Auto Captions allows you to automatically generate captions and subtitles for your videos, from directly within Teleprompter Premium, or Video Teleprompter.

Important:
Auto Captions is a feature available within our Teleprompter apps. To use Auto Captions, you must already have Teleprompter Premium or Video Teleprompter installed on your device.

Get Started and Enable Auto Captions

  1. Start your 7-day free trial on the Auto Captions website →
  2. Check that you have latest App Store updates for Teleprompter Premium or Video Teleprompter installed
  3. Open any of your scripts in Teleprompter Premium or Video Teleprompter
  4. Tap the settings icon at the bottom, then select Auto Captions
  5. Enable the Enable Auto Captions option

Generate Your First Captions File

If you’re using Teleprompter Premium:
When Auto Captions is enabled, your captions file begins ‘recording’ when you start scrolling your script. By default, your captions file will only complete recording when you reach the end of your script.

To generate your first captions file, open any of your scripts, make sure that the Enable Auto Captions option is enabled in the settings, then begin scrolling through your script until it reaches the end.

You can then adjust and export your .srt caption file by tapping the settings icon at the bottom, then selecting Caption Files.

If you’re using Video Teleprompter:
When Auto Captions is enabled, your captions file begins and ends recording at the same time that your video begins and ends recording. This means your captions file will be perfectly timed to your recorded video.

To generate your first captions file, open any of your scripts, make sure that the Enable Auto Captions option is enabled in the settings, then record a video of any length.

You will now see a new option to add subtitles to your recorded video when saving it. You can also adjust and export your .srt caption file after saving or discarding your video, by tapping the settings icon at the bottom, then selecting Caption Files.

Adjusting Caption Settings

Auto Captions has a range of versatile adjustments, it’s important to experiment to make sure your captions work well for you. Here are some resources to help customise Auto Captions:
