  • 0:00 - 0:03
    We started Universal Subtitles
    because we believe
  • 0:03 - 0:07
    every video on the web
    should be subtitle-able.
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    Millions of deaf
    and hard-of-hearing viewers
  • 0:09 - 0:11
    require subtitles to access video.
  • 0:11 - 0:15
    Videomakers and websites should
    really care about this stuff too.
  • 0:15 - 0:18
    Subtitles give them access
    to a wider audience
  • 0:18 - 0:21
    and they also get
    better search rankings.
  • 0:21 - 0:24
    Universal Subtitles
    makes it incredibly easy
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    to add subtitles to almost any video.
  • 0:27 - 0:32
    Take an existing video on the web,
    submit the URL to our website
  • 0:32 - 0:36
    and then type along with the
    dialog to create the subtitles.
  • 0:39 - 0:44
    After that, tap on your keyboard
    to sync them with the video.
  • 0:44 - 0:47
    Then you're done
    — we give you an embed code
  • 0:47 - 0:50
    for the video that you
    can put on any website
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    at that point, viewers are able
    to use the subtitles
  • 0:53 - 0:56
    and can also
    contribute to translations.
  • 0:56 - 1:01
    We support videos on YouTube,
    Blip.TV, Ustream, and many more.
  • 1:01 - 1:05
    Plus we're adding
    more services all the time.
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    Universal Subtitles works
    with many popular video formats,
  • 1:09 - 1:14
    such as MP4, theora,
    webM and over HTML 5.
  • 1:14 - 1:18
    Our goal is for every video
    on the web to be subtitle-able
  • 1:18 - 1:20
    so that anyone who cares
    about the video
  • 1:20 - 1:23
    can help make it more accessible.
