The main features of SubRip are:
- extracting subtitles from video files, the fill character matrix from a manually matched font, the “best guess so far” functionality, the “extend left and right” for disjoint characters and the support for saving recognized subtitles as bitmaps for later removal.
The output formats supported by SubRip are SUB, SCR, TXT, SRT, PSB, STL, ZEG, TTS, SON and SST.
The interface may seem a bit difficult to use at the first sight, and there is no help file for beginners. Some of the options may seem quite complex for those who are not familiar with subtitle editing programs.
Nevertheless, SubRip is a valuable addition to your system due to its wide range of subtitle extraction and editing options.

This application manages to preserve the original timing and it can also convert VobSub to SET subtitles.
