This is one of THE BEST apps to add captions to your social media videos. We use to make these using Premiere Pro professional editing suite, until we found apps that do a great job, including auto generated text.
I use Envato market. - Audio Jungle and Video Hive for background music and video templates. Check out the home page on Audio Jungle each month for featured free resources. I don't use the subscription version, and usually purchase my favorite songs or templates as needed.
A quick way to transcribe audio and video files. into text  The new AI version  provides a quick turnaround. Transcribe your videos into a blog or your "talk" into an ebook. I recently used Rev to transcribe audio notes from my phone to use as podcast outlines. Start with the free 45 minutes to try it out.
