I am doing an interview type video and would like to know how I can differentiate between my subtitles and the person I am interviewing?

Hi Paul,
Would you believe you are the first person to ask for this feature?
It’s not too difficult to make happen really, but it isn’t currently live. What is your deadline on this video?

That’s interesting. I thought it would have been asked before. 🤷‍♂️
I don’t have a time line really but thought it would be awesome if I could do it.
I think maybe a different colour for each speaker or an italics options.
I use an app called Otter for audio transcription. It separates speakers in the manuscript which would be very handy in this app.
Congrats on this software. I can see how it is going to save me a ton of time and get my content out to more people.
I also really appreciate your personalised and quick response.

Yeah Paul, it is surprising. Most of the features on ClipScribe are based on user feedback, so since no one has been asking it hasn’t been a feature I have worked on.

If you are wanting to import an otter SRT file, I would need to look into that as well so I can see how they differentiate the speakers.

Do you have a file you can send me? If so, send to
