As an author, you can generate or upload caption files to a video or audio file that you own in Bridge Studio. The most common file type is an SRT file, though Studio also supports VTT files, which are more user-friendly for mobile devices.

If you need help creating a captioned file, you can use a captioning site such as Amara to easily create captions for your video or audio files.

Notes

  • Some features may be restricted based on permissions for your user role
