Set the font color, size and background for subtitles
Narakeet now allows you to customise styling for closed captions and subtitles, and engage your audiences better. Subtitles and closed captions are critically important for educational materials, since they make the videos accessible to students with disabilities. They can also be great to reach a wider audience on social networks, with video autoplay often running with muted sound.

subtitle header to
overlay-background, as in the example below:
--- size: 720p subtitles: overlay-background --- Where do you want to go for coffee? !(pic.jpg)
