Is it possible to make a subtitle .srt file from an audio file? If it is... how? I was thinking that there could be a program which recognizes the words people say in audio and then it can convert it to text. Just don't know if there is such a program out yet.

It might be possible to use a dictation tool like Dragon NaturallySpeaking to try and capture the words to text, but this would be patchy at best. Any background noise in a scene or intonation / accent might throw it off. There would be a lot of correction
Also, it would not generate a timecode for the SRT, only the text. You'd need to add the times in yourself somehow
You can make a blank video file with it and upload it to you Youtube account, then you will be able to download the automatically generated .srt subtitle from your channel video manager.
There is no tool in current technology to convert audio files directly to
.srt except someone reading the subtitles aloud and recording them to an
.one way you can do it is transcribing audio to text, then you can use any text-to-srt converter to convert it to
You can also manually edit the
.srt files by renaming to
.txt, you can edit the text file and rename back to
srt files in order to get the changes.
Basically NO. The tools you find out there are not that exact and there is always a bit of mishearing in voice recognition systems (if the speed goes up or the pitch changes etc.).
If it is a music file then I can say YOU "Cant".
Nothing will work like our brains ... ;)
