Subtitle, Caption and Translate Any Video with Amara / Universal Subtitles

Amara is a free web-based service that allows anyone to easily sub-title and add captions to any video. 

 

As long as you have a URL of a published video, Amara makes it very easy to caption it. The clip may be on a video sharing site or embedded in custom video player and Amara can still get to it.

 

Amara is made up of three main parts:

 

a) A subtitle creation and viewing tool (aka the widget)


b) A collaborative subtitling website

 

c) An open protocol for subtitle search/delivery

 

All tools inside Amara are free and open-source.

Sock Puppets

Sock Puppets is a highly engaging app that allows you to create your own stories with virtual sock puppets straight into your iPhone in a very easy and intuitive way.
Add Puppets, scenery, backgrounds and additional objects and start creating your story. The puppets automatically lip-synch to your voice when you touch the record button. Children can create stories and add the characters they prefer. Storytelling is probably the best way to foster writing and reading skills as well as literacy. While recording simply choose a puppet, tap it and that puppet will lip-synch, tap a different puppet and switch auto lip-synching to it. Stories can be as rich as the children’s imagination can reach. Backgrounds can be added to take puppets to different places within the story.
Children can later share their stories across the net, which makes it also highly rewarding.

Sock Puppets is free, although extra features need an upgrade (clips only last 30 sec, which could be enough for very short stories... longer stories need to be cut into different clips)
