Lesson 06: Subtitles (YouTube)
All the main application functions work well with any MP3 file. However the presence of subtitle file has several advantages:
Let’s have a look at how the main window changes if a subtitle file is opened:
First, a subtitles area appears underneath a waveform diagram. Depending on whether "Show always" button is switched on or off the application behaves differently.
Subtitle file can have a table of content. In this case "Go" button becomes available. Also notches appear on the progress bar, showing headings’ positions.
This application supports two formats of subtitles:
Secondary subtitles. Apart from the main subtitles, you can open additional ones.
For example, if you learn Russian and you have a sound track of some Russian movie and subtitles in Russian and English,
you can open English subtitles as primary, and Russian as secondary.
In this case, if you doubt your translation of a Russian phrase, you can look into the version translated by the professional.
To open secondary subtitles, click "Open" > "Open Secondary Subtitles File.."
If subtitles file’s name matches with the name of the MP3 file, for example, there is a file named
"SomeBook.html", "SomeBook.htm", "SomeBook.txt" or "SomeBook.srt" in the same folder with "SomeBook.mp3" file –
then the application will open such files automatically together with opening the MP3 file.
If the name of a subtitles file differs from the name of the MP3 file – you can open it separately with the help of "Open" button,
after MP3 is opened. Please, pay attention, that the "SomeBook.html", "SomeBook.htm" or "SomeBook.txt" files should have a specific
markup according to WorkAudioBook HTML format, not just to be an arbitrary text files.
You can change phrase searching algorithm when subtitles are present:
