Description

This gadget is a very simple gadget for displaying subtitles. Though you can change some aspects of its appearance, its strength is in its ability to use the player’s own system subtitle settings (size, colour, position, etc), making it ideal for the specific purpose of captioning audio for the hard-of-hearing and fans of the mute button. For more versatile display of text within your scene, see the Text Displayer and Dialogue Text Displayer gadgets.
