Aegisub is a free subtitle editor that works with multiple formats. This program is particularly useful for non-fluent foreign language speakers watching television shows or movies in their second language. Now you can avoid missing words and phrases! Subtitles are also a necessity in karaoke. All of the tools needed to create a completely subtitled file for video files are included in Aegisub, which works well with most popular subtitle file formats.

Subtitles may be inserted in accordance with time or frame number. The program's interface features a built-in video player. The ease of insertion reduces stress during the subtitling process, enabling users to see the video and track their progress at the same time, while checking to ensure the timing of their subs is accurate. Also included are rich format elements that allow subtitles to have flashy effects, such as animated colors, which can be useful for purposes like karaoke. The program also allows users to either create their own subtitles or edit ones found on the web, making it easy to adapt subtitles to videos.
