Tutorial: Syncing timed captions in Ooona

This is a short video to show you how to adjust existing timings to align your caption blocks with audible content using Ooona.

Once you’ve finished editing your text, set Ooona to ‘Review mode’ and enable ‘Video Follows Subtitle’. Use the video controls to navigate to the start of the audible content in your media. Press Tab to play and pause the video. If you need to speed the video up, toggle 1 to play at double speed. Press the Home button (above your number pad) to set your sync start time. Now, play the video again until you hear the dialogue that matches the last word in your caption. Press End, the button to the left of Home, to set your sync end time. You can skip backward in the video by one second by holding control, and then pressing shift (ctrl+shift). Skip forward in the video by one second by holding alt, then pressing shift (alt+shift). For finer timing control, hold control and press comma or full stop to move backwards and forwards one step (ctrl+,)(ctrl+.). Repeat the process until all the caption blocks have been synced.
