Closed / Open Captions
Please add option to add close caption/subitltes so we can do it offline if we haven't got access to internet on the move
It’s safe to say that we are considering open and closed captions together, so this suggestion now reflects that.
Please continue to weigh in on the value of both or either in the comments below.

This is not really optional and is the reason why I have been actively trying other solutions. Not only for the hearing impaired, but people in general want captions. Studies have show that people are 70-80% more likely to watch videos with captions. You can look up a study Verizon did recently. I am in shock that Rush doesn’t have automated captions, or at least the ability to import captions when simple programs like wave.video, veed.io and others already have it. I sincerely hope you are adding it soon.

I see this has been under review since 2018 and it's now 2021 and still no sign of captions. I would have thought this would be standard functionality by now and I think it really lets the product down which is a shame as Rush is a really great editing tool. Please can this be reviewed again with urgency.

We're 2 years down the line and even with Rush Desktop - nothing has been done to sort this out.

we really need to have simplified captioning. this is a 21st century product with 20th century technology.

So... in higher education it is now or never as far as adding captions to meet ADA standards. I am surprised that no one has been able to come up with a way to join auto-captioning and recording technologies. It is an empty niche; and educators trained to educate rather than operate surprisingly complex programs are freaking out. I think that this thread created expectations, but I will now be moving on to Camtasia or YouTube.

Please create a closed captioning tool so it can be toggled on and off by the viewer using cc in whatever viewer they choose.

Transcripts and captions have a high focus in education. Captions benefits everyone - just not people with disabilities. Auto-captions are great but not there yet - they have to be edited so students don't 'learn' incorrect information. Tools to edit those captions are terrible - with the possible exception of Camtasia. YouTube's captioning model while basic is interesting. MS Stream's captioning service is excellent and captioning is serviceable.
I've been able to convince academics to use Rush because of how time saving it is. Having captions in Rush would empower them to create fully accessible content at the outset.

Please be inspired by Camtasia. They got a really easy way to txt on screen and get the files in a seperate file.

I agree with Laurent with the SRT import / export. The other comments are spot on, captions are vital for videos that will be seen on social media. Thanks for your consideration!

Hi, can we please just have a simple way of adding simple captions bottom centre. Just on-again-off-again captions with no effects like fade (which is distracting and too slow for quicker word pace) etc. This should be simple to program and I think urgently needed by a lot of uses.
Thanks for the request llona. We totally agree that would be an awesome addition to Rush. Merging your request to another one we're actively tracking.

Since a lot of clips shared on social media are watched without sound, having a quick tool option for adding subtitles would be GREAT.
It would also make the content more accessible for everyone, in regards to the web content accessibility guidelines (in the EU).
Ps. Huge fan of Adobe Rush!

I often want to edit without the audio on. Auto caption would be amazing!

Add subtitle upload option
It would become better if you could put subtitle!
Yes having captions for sound off videos would be awesome
Would be awesome to have a tool using AI to provide auto captions as a starting point. Then, we could just edit those for errors and then burn them into the video for social!
Accessibility is the latest thing, this is a requirement for all of our video work
