All features


This program provides two main functionality:
1 ) Generate srt subtitles with timing (but without text) from hardcoded subtitles into the video by using algorithms of digital image processing.
2 ) Generate cleared (text only) images from images with hardcoded subtitles (using text mining algorithms) for further recognition by software like FineReader and generation srt subtitles with timing and text.
For working this programm possibly will be required to install "K-Lite Codec Pack Full" and Visual Studio 2017 runtime x64.

Quick note to start with: you don't necessarily need ABBYY finereader to OCR the results (meaning, converting images of the subtitles to actual text). SubtitleEdit can import the images and OCR them too.


Still, it's a nice piece of software, that makes it easy to rip hardcoded subtitles. VideoSubFinder isn't hard to use - once you figure out what's supposed to happen. I.e. that it creates image files with time codes, that then have to be recognised in the second stage.
When you understand how the chain of processes works, it's not complicated to operate at all!
Works fine when the picture quality is best and subtitles are white with border. Of course, manual correction is still necessary.


However... I fear, that InPaintDelogo yields better results. It requires more technical skills, but I had a few hardcoded subtitles in yellow - some were otherwise sharp. VSF just couldn't cope even if I started playing with the settings.
Even normal white subtitles (with black border) in SD videos may come out a little bit better with Inpaint. It also seems to miss less items - while VSF sometimes skips a few sentences that you have to add manually.


As mentioned at the start, Subtitle Edit's options for OCR (such as tesseract) may give better than ABBYY. (Or else, just try both, before you delete the image files.) Not to beat about the bush: if SubtitleEdit one day incorporates this detection function, then VSF will be totally redundant.


Written December 2021.

This version cuts the lines. There is missing lines and characters in each title.
ABBYY can OCR the lines without error. But when it comes to Create subtitle from TXT Results, it cuts every line.

TXT RESULT:
"HOŞ GELDİN BOB"

SUBTITLE RESULT:
