In Debian we could find four subtitling programs: subtitleeditor, gnome-subtitle, ksubtile and gaupol. We have written a little description for each of them with the best and worst it could give us. This is incomplete and unfinished yet

Video Subtitling in Debian

Software available

We've tried to analyze each subtitling program looking for this information:

subtitleeditor
