Import TTML Caption Files in the STAMP Add-in in PowerPoint 2016, 2013, and 2010 for Windows

Learn how you can import TTML caption files in the STAMP add-in in PowerPoint 2016, 2013, and 2010 for Windows. TTML is one of the standard caption file formats.


Product/Version: PowerPoint 2016, 2013, and 2010 for Windows

OS: Microsoft Windows XP and higher

It's so easy to create and insert captions using the Caption Editor within the STAMP add-in for PowerPoint. But if your captions already available as TTML files, you can import those captions into PowerPoint even more easily.

Follow these steps to import captions contained inside TTML XML files within PowerPoint:

  1. Before importing any captions, you need a slide that has a video clip inserted. Select the inserted video, and you'll activate the Video Tools tab of the Ribbon. Then click the Playback tab highlighted in red, as shown within Figure 1.
  2. Select the Playback tab

  3. Within the Captions group, click the bottom part of the Add Captions button to bring up the menu shown in Figure 2. Then choose the Caption From File option.
  4. Click the Captions From File option
    Figure 2: Click the Captions From File option
  5. No Caption Options?

    Don't see the Add Captions button? You need to install the free STAMP add-in for PowerPoint.
  6. This brings up the Open dialog box, as shown in Figure 3. Locate the folder where your TTML XML file is saved, select it and click the Open button.
  7. Open dialog box

  8. This will open the Load Captions dialog box (see Figure 4). Click the OK button to import the captions.
  9. Load Captions dialog box

  10. Note: Choose the Edit Captions checkbox within Load Captions dialog box only if you want to edit the captions after they have been imported into your presentation. By selecting the Edit Captions checkbox you'll get the Caption Editor window where you can edit the imported captions.
  11. This imports the captions into PowerPoint for the selected movie clip, as shown in Figure 5.

  13. Play the slideshow to see all the captions playing. Save your presentation.
Note: The imported TTML XML file is not linked to the presentation or the selected video clip, so if you make any changes to the captions within the TTML XML file, you need to re-import it into PowerPoint again to update the captions.
