Subtitles are textual versions of the dialogue or commentary in films, series, video games, and other visual media, typically displayed at the bottom of the screen. They translate or transcribe the spoken language into the same or another language, ensuring content accessibility for a diverse audience. They can help people with hearing impairments, they are useful in case you learn a language and they provide clarity when the audio quality is not ideal.

You can get subtitles for a video file in two ways: Either you find a subtitles download website where you can download subtitles that you need or you use a software to search for them.
