closed caption editing capabilities

    I have found caption editing in ARC to be very restrictive compared to other captioning tools I've used.


    ARC should include these essential caption editing capabilities:

    • edit the time stamps
      • Many times it's easier to edit the time stamps on captions rather than moving text to different rows to align with the existing time stamps. 
    • add new captions
      • I have several videos in which ARC didn't begin the auto-captions until about 50 seconds into the video. These video intros include sound effects, music, and emergency dispatching audio that needs captioned. Because ARC doesn't allow users to add new lines to the captions, I must caption all of these videos in YouTube.
