    We can go through the captions and edit them as necessary
    .
    Once we've completed our edits, we can rewind the video to the beginning and play it one more time. In this example, the video narrates: "Hi! This is my reviewing demo of the Drinkkler Smart Tea Infuser. This is the item, and it mainly just goes over the main selling points here, on the back of the box; so, I'll just read through those. It contains a tea infuser and a drip tray. It's got simple label instructions on how to use it here, on the back of the box. It shows you putting tea into the container, attaching the lid to the container, attaching the lid to the cup..."

    We can also adjust the length of the two subtitle markers to match the timing of the video
    .
    For instance, we can make it shorter, so that the text will be shown over a shorter period of time if it was the way it was in the video. This will make the text disappear at the particular time.

    We can also go about adding in some new places if we need
    .
    For example, we can shorten one subtitle period to account for a little gap where nothing is said. We can go back and listen to the piece one more time.
