Enabling, displaying and downloading subtitles for your video

When recording a video, it can be a pain to create a transcript, especially if you have some long-form content. Good news is that you don't have to do a thing a to have the transcript and the subtitles ready when your recording with Prezi Video! The transcript will be automatically generated and available from the video's view page and you can also download the subtitles from the video admin page.

Paid feature: Downloading subtitles is available for users with a Plus or higher Prezi plan. Luckily it's a breeze to upgrade your license and get access to this and all the other great features our Prezi plans have to offer. 

Enabling and downloading subtitles 

Once your video is saved and processed, you'll be taken to the video admin page where you can preview your content, select a thumbnail, add a description and tags and change the privacy settings.

Here, you'll also be able to enable the auto-generated transcript and subtitles which means that anybody who can access the video's view page will be able to turn on the subtitles while watching the video and see the entire transcript under the video window. (The box is ticked by default for each video you create.)

Please note: The audio transcript, and consequently the captions are automatically generated and are supported in the following languages only: Modern Standard Arabic, German, US English, Spanish, French, Indian Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Chinese Mandarin - Mainland, Dutch, Russian, Indonesian and Hebrew.

If you'd like to download the auto-generated subtitles, select Download subtitles on the right to export the transcript in .srt format.

Please note: It might take up to 10-20 minutes for the transcript to be generated. If you don't see the option on the video admin page, please return to it later by selecting the cogwheel icon on the video's thumbnail on your Prezi Video dashboard.
