subs2srs is a small utility that allows you to create Anki import files based on your favorite foreign language movies and TV shows to aid in the language learning process.

This utility will parse through a subtitle file, extract the dialog and timing information, and then use that information to generate audio clips, snapshots, and video clips for each line of dialog. With all options enabled, a card will have this information generated for it (assume that it is a Japanese movie):

1) Textual line of Japanese dialog (taken from the Japanese subtitle file)

2) English translation (taken from the English subtitle file)

3) Audio clip

4) Snapshot

5) Video clip (You would not normally want to generate an audio clip AND a video clip, this is just an example).

6) Tag information (for Anki import).

7) Sequence marker (episode #, line #, and timing)

8) Context Info (previous and next lines)

Subs2Srs can also be used for Cantonese and languages other than Japanese. Beware of the classic problem of differences between "written" Cantonese (what's written in the subtitles/readings) and "spoken" Cantonese (what you hear said in the audio).
