The free subtitling platform for video has added a new feature for users:
”We want video with the transcription! We want it to highlight the currently spoken line! We want it to seek when I click on a line in the transcription!”
So now you can make your own transcriptions of videos, embed both in your webpage for users to watch and read interactively (like TED talks).
The dotSUB site was already very useful for language teachers and learners: the transcription tool is easy to learn, and anyone can save and share transcriptions, making it possible to translate the same clip into different languages. Teachers can find resources, or subtitle their own choices in the original language or in translation to help listening comprehension, and learners can make their own subtitles for close listening and/or translation practice.
