Emphasis (boutens) and rubies which are the annotations used in Japanese and other East Asian languages that define the pronunciation of a word are fully supported too.
SubtitleNEXT also enables the import and export of subtitles in the all-embracing LambdaCap format which is one the most widely used subtitling formats in Korean, Chinese and Japanese languages.
Other feature highlights in the new SubtitleNEXT 5.12 version that will be showcased at Media for All include the ability to export subtitling error lists in CSV files; Teletext issue checks and closed captioning processing times; including the addition of a speedy “Quick Styles” toolbar default setting, Raised or Top styles when required.
