Step 2: Connect your Zoom account

Click “Zoom integration” on the sidebar, then click “Connect” to connect your Zoom account to Sonix. We'll then automatically pull all of your cloud Zoom recordings and let you manually transcribe them. We also can automatically transcribe all future Zoom recordings if you want.

Step 3: Polish your automated transcript

Our automated transcription algorithms aren't 100% accurate, so they'll need a bit of polishing in our powerful, in-browser editor.

Step 4: Split transcript into subtitles

Select “Split transcript” from the Subtitle menu and our editor will automatically split your transcript into smaller character-limited subtitles. You can tweak the subtitles so that they are perfect.

Step 5: Customize subtitles

Easily adjust the timing, font colors, alignment, and positioning of the subtitles.

Step 6: Burn-in and download Zoom video with subtitles

Select “Burn-in” from the Subtitle menu. Our computers will process your Zoom recording and place the subtitles into that video (frame-by-frame). In a few minutes, you'll have a video with perfect subtitles. No need to download any advanced software like Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro to get subtitles in your Zoom recordings.
