  2. Tap on the sticker icon and then select the “Captions” sticker
  3. The first 15 seconds of your video will now be scanned using Audio recognition software and within a few seconds your captions will appear on the screen.
  4. You can then tap on 3 text icons at the bottom of the screen to choose different layouts of text (large, typewriter style or standard text) You can also tap on the colour wheel at the top and select a colour for the text.)
  5. To edit the spelling of a word or to insert a missing word simply tap on the text and you can edit it.
  6. To change the position of the text simply drag it up or down the screen.
