Create accessible content for all!

Make your videos accessible to anyone watching from around the world who is deaf or hard-of-hearing, or who is watching videos without sound. You can even translate your subtitles into over 100 languages! (Available in premium.) Ensure that you get more views and grow your following!

Make your videos searchable online

By subtitling and transcribing your video (saving your subtitles as text), you make your video easier to search for and find! Just paste the transcript in the description of your video. Drive traffic to your blogs and landing pages!

What they say about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen. Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

Laura Haleydt - Brand Marketing Manager, Carlsberg Importers

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software! I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there. It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
