Closed Captions vs Subtitles:
Closed Captions are usually inter-weaved in a video stream itself during a broadcast to aid hearing impaired viewers, while subtitles are generally used to aid viewers who don't understand the language.
Text-Based vs Image-Based Subtitles:
When a movie is ripped from Blu-ray/DVD disc, soft subtitles are kept, most of the time, they are not saved in Text-based files. They are saved in "VobSub (bitmap)" or "PGS" format(Image-Based). With VobSub and PGS, each subtitle is an image that will be displayed on top of the video. The problem is that iDevices and QuickTime are not able to read VobSub or PGS subtitles. So OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology is needed to convert Image-Based subtitles to Text-Based.
Hard Subtitles vs Soft Subtitles:
Hard subtitles are part of the video itself (superimposed text), they cannot be removed or extracted, while Soft Subtitles are rendered as a separate track in a video file and not part of the video itself, so it can be switched ON/OFF and thus can be extracted.
Updated OCR libraries for more accurate extraction of Image-Based subtitles for several languages.
Added ability to extract only the needed subtitle if multiple language subtitles are present.
Ratings and Reviews
After the Update
I have to chnge my review from 5 stars to 3. Simply because it relly depends on the video you are trying to get the close captions from. It is really a hit or miss. A bit annoying nd hope they can fix this issue soon. I am hard of hearing and need the close captions!

I am raising my review from 3 to 5 stars
I have had subsequent emails from him, and a satisfied he will be releassing a new version with most of my concerns repairs, soon.
Raising the review since I was a bit hasty. He had not replied, but turns out he was very busy. I must appologize for that.
I spoke to him a few times. We discovered that his app was failing because of character sets in some subtitles that his app did not understand. So it would basically crash. He knows what is happening, yet he has not updated it to at least ignore those items and continue on.
In addition I sent him a request for a useful enhancement. Wanted to be able to batch a folder of movies. Being a fellow developer, I even suggested how to do this. But he did not respond. For many of us who need to extract more than 3 or 4 films worth of subtitles, this is sorta a must have. Other wise it is a mess.
It is a fine tool but if you need to extract subtitles and it keeps crashing, you should use the MKVToolNix and uncheck the offending foreign subtitles and recreated the MKV. This will allow you to extract and least english, spanish, french from most any mkv file without it crashing. A work around at least.
Developer Response ,
Hi Earl, I still support the App. It looks like that the app hangs for a specific video file with a specific language subtitle. Can you please send that particular video file to the email id provided in the app? I will fix it in the next update.
It worked perfectly for me
Just purchased/downloaded this app last night. My files types are mkv and the software worked flawlessly to extract the subtitle files and leave them as srt files in separate folders. I suggest having each mkv file in a separate folder and then opening this application, clicking the green add button, searching for the mkv video file in the folder you created, adding to the software engine, and processing the extraction. You will then find the extracted srt file in an auto-generated folder within the original mkv folder you created.
I have not tried this software with other video types, just with mkv.
