Adding breaks in subtitles

Kristine -

Users can add breaks in lines of subtitles using HTML <br>. This is often used for long lines of dialogue or when there are multiple speakers during a certain timeframe. If needed, single breaks (<br>) are recommended to use.

However, we ask that users do not:

  1. Create segments with empty breaks (breaks without any dialogue or copy)
  2. Create consecutive breaks/break tags (<br><br>)

Empty breaks and consecutive tags negatively affect the rendering of subtitles as well as the performance of our TV apps (ex. Roku, SmartTV, etc.).
