Free Subtitle Ripping Software for Windows 7 (SubRip)
Once you have ripped your DVD (using DVD Shrink or DVDFab), the next step is to encoded it. If you also want to have the subtitles, you have the option of hard-coding them during the encoding process, but then you won’t be able to turn it off if you don’t want it. The other preferred option is to use SubRip to rip the subtitle to a .srt text file. If you put this srt file which should have the same name as the video file, most media players would automatically detect it and display the subtitles for you.
Lets see how to use SubRip to extract subtitle from a VOB or a ripped DVD.
Now click on the Open Dir to choose your VOB file(s). Instead of manually selection all the VOB files, a better option is to choose the IFO file inside VIDEO_TS folder, to choose this you would have to change the file type from *.vob to vts_*.ifo
SubRip would tell you the number of subtitles it detected. Now click on Start button to get started, you would have to teach the OCR algorithm to identify different characters and once it has learnt enough it would proceed to write out the subtitle file for you.
Once the subtitles have been extracted you should correct it for any possible mistakes or formatting errors (e.g. mixup between l and I etc.), you can do so by click on the Corrections and then applying the corrections.
PS: Mac (Snow Leopard) users might want to try a similar software for subtitle ripping called D-Subtitler.
