Video content is a major component of digital storytelling. People watch videos on their social feeds, YouTube channels, news and blog articles, and more. Since we’re constantly watching video content, sometimes an opportunity arises when we’re on the go where you can’t hear the audio of a video or don’t have headphones to plug in. Thus, subtitles allow viewers to watch a video without audio so they can still enjoy what the video has to share. Subtitles can also be used for introductions, credits, or explaining context of what’s playing on the screen. Share important details and enhance your video’s level of professionalism by adding subtitles using Adobe Spark Video.

How to Add Subtitles to Your Videos

  1. Upload Your Content

    Open up your Adobe Spark Video mobile app. Upload your filmed content to your timeline, and choose the size format that suits your needs by tapping “Resize.”

  2. Add Subtitles

    To add subtitles, tap the “Layout” tab and choose “Caption” to create a subtitle for that specific clip. Once you choose your layout, return to the clip and press the “+” button to add text, and use the size controls to make your font larger or smaller.

  3. Customize Your Design

    Above your video, tap “Theme” to explore font and color variations. Each theme offers different font styles, as well as video and text animations, so be sure to give each one a test run to see how it fits your video! Tap the pencil icon to explore color options that will give your captioned text a background.

  4. Revisit and Revise Your Video Edit

    Adobe Spark Post saves your design so you can go back and make additional changes. Revise the video size, add new music, or tack on opening and closing credits. No edits are permanent, so you can always revert back to your original version for future needs.
