I have seen this question but my one is a little different.

I have the video of some lectures and also the exact text of the lectures. The lectures are in US English. The audio is good, no audible noise, no background music. I can separate the audio from video if necessarily.

So, is there any tool with which I can generate the subtitles? Linux solutions are good for me but windows will be OK too.

  • How is yours different? – Synetech Jul 9 '12 at 16:54
  • @Synetech Looks like it's different because he actually has the text and needs to make a subtitle file. – Sion Jul 9 '12 at 16:57
  • But is the text that of what is being said or just notes? If it is what is actually being said (peculiar) then where did it come from and why is it not already a subtitle (like I said, it would be peculiar for them to specifically provide subs, but as a separate file). @Mohaimin, you could just use a subtitle editor. – Synetech Jul 9 '12 at 16:59
  • @Synetech: The text is exactly the same as the speech in the video. The text and the video is from different source. – Mohayemin Jul 9 '12 at 17:44
  • That's really strange. Where did you get a copy of the subtitles to your lectures? (Oh wait, I am assuming that this is a school thing; is it like an online tutorial instead? That would make sense.) In any case, just use one of the subtitle editors that I liked to. (Technically asking for software recommendations is apparently now frowned upon, but you can certainly Google for subtitle editor reviews.) – Synetech Jul 9 '12 at 17:53

A quick search found that there is a tool called Subtitle editor (http://home.gna.org/subtitleeditor/) in most distribution repositories which would allow you to make external subtitle files that can be used with a wide range of video players.
