Can I convert Word to an SRT file for free?
If you’re only after an SRT file, you may be able to change the .docx file extension to .srt after saving your Word doc as .txt. To add your .srt file to a video or project, you may still require a video editor such as Adobe Premiere.
Do SRT files have formatting?
Yes - to accurately timeline the closed captions or subtitles, SRT files retain formatting of the text documents. That means when you convert a Word to an SRT file, you need to ensure the original document is correctly formatted.
