Anything you can take a screen shot of can be marked up as a PDF. Here is a quick demo showing how to mark up corrections to titles (or captions) in a video. It uses the free Adobe Reader XI software.

Steps are written out below.

 

Steps to create a PDF from a screen shot

  1. Launch the video / program or whatever.

  3. Take a screen shot (see tips below).
  4. Create PDF by opening the screen shot in your preferred viewer or pasting it into a Word document, then selecting “Save as PDF” or “print to PDF.”
  5. Open the PDF in Adobe Reader XI. (Make sure it opens in the program, and not within a web browser window.)
