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.

Captions should be a channel attached to individual audio channel. There appearance of the text should be based on the same video track hierarchy.

It would be amazing if we could upload .srt or .vtt subtitle files. I don't know how easy this is to implement, however it would be very helpful for myself and others with the types of projects we would like to do.
Subtitles are a wonderful and needed feature! Thank you for considering this feature Adobe!

Please add a way to easily add captions and work on the fact that it glitches on windows 10
On my windows 10 as soon as I'm working on a video longer than a few seconds it keeps freezing and glitching when trying to preview the video.
Also a way to add subtitles / captions rather than titles would be really useful!

I would like to be able to add captions to my Tiktok and Reels videos but I feel it is too ******* Rush. I just need text right over the center of the screen in the font of my choosing.
Daniel Halonen commented
Summary: Adding text as graphics is time consuming. There should be a tool that one could use for easy captioning.
Problem: I have some followers that do not speak the same language as the most of them do, and also followers who cannot hear peoperly. To caption the video would be really nice feature.
A possible solution:
- users could either copy-paste text or edit it in a separate view, one row being one phrase
- then video would play and user would tap a button to synchronize each row with the speech
Then these could be converted to graphics as they are now, but adding them would be 900000x faster.

I am creating another request for captions/subtitles to be added to your features, especially auto-generated ones to decrease editing time. Please consider adding this feature. I was very disappointed to find that Premiere Rush doesn’t even give the option to add your own text except for “title” slides.

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.
Kaitlyn Robinson commented
Adding captions is tedious and the technology to have automated captions exists. It would make a huge difference to not have to use three different apps to get captions on my video.
Tina McCarthy commented
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.
Jonseph Gomez commented
An option to automatically add subtitles that from audio you upload. It would save a lot of time from typing the subtitles myself and cutting them.
Sam Metrick commented
there should be a captions tab insted of having to use graphics this would be really helpful for people that are making videos for youtube or even other things
Tashnuva Masud commented
With the increased use of tiktok and other social media platforms, cc videos is a major plus.
ivana george commented
I wish it could do voice to type captions like the clips app in iPhone does. And the captions are editable!
Jahlen Lay commented
as an independent filmmaker I am often asked for my clients to include: close captions for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. would be really amazing if premier rush could do this.
Collin Walsh commented
i want to be able to load a premiere file on my iphone. perhaps offline my media and just add captioning in on my iphone instead of on a desktop computer.
Peter Wynne commented
We're 2 years down the line and even with Rush Desktop - nothing has been done to sort this out.
roselle weiner commented
we really need to have simplified captioning. this is a 21st century product with 20th century technology.
Warren Church commented
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.
Christina Smith commented
Please create a closed captioning tool so it can be toggled on and off by the viewer using cc in whatever viewer they choose.
Tom Cotton commented
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.
