I need an application to create subtitles that can remember words you typed in and help to type them when you type them again. It may be paid software, any OS would be fine, except Apple's. It may be web.
Not limited to subtitles, PhraseExpress is a text expander program for multiple platforms, including Windows and MacOS. There is a limited free version, although it's not particularly clear what features are not part of the free program.
My sister is a transcriptionist and uses this software to expedite her recording from audio. It works in a simple manner. Common phrases and words, along with formatting, are entered into the editor, with a key phrase assigned to the entry.
As an example "subt" is not a commonly used word or abbreviation. Once entered in the editor, you would type those four letters and a space or tab (I forget which) and the entry would replace them with your desired information/text/formatting.
Your tags indicate that this is for video editing, but the program functions with any text related software.
CudaText editor allows this, using two addons:
- lexer for subtitles. In the menu "Plugins / Addon Manager / Install" you will find lexer for SRT subtitles.
- plugin to auto-complete words from the current file. In the same menu: Complete From Text.
