Unfortunately I can't ask someone to do this, I only have this old word document with no current maintainer. (And I don't want to always rely on an external person to open/convert documents for me.)

I see! It does work, so apparently some websites will work and some others wont?

I do have the "Reading List", but the "Reader" function doesn't seem to appear on my 3GS phone. Reader wont work there?

Sorry, I did give it a second try, but the apparent lack of support of the player for utf8 and accented characters was a mayor hurdle for me.

After some test drive of all the available options, I'm staying with this. The interface is decent, and it is easy not only to add subtitles, but also move them around and shift them a bit. Looking at the audio wave is also very useful to correctly put the subtitles in place. Not perfect, but definitely the most usable. Thanks!

It works! Just got back an email from the developer: there is a small bug in which neither the counter not the subtitles work if you are editing a new subtitles script. If you close the app, load a video and some partial script then both meter and subtitles work correctly! Despite the horrible interface, this is perhaps the most functional of the alternatives (it just does what I want to do, easily); but I'll experiment a bit with all the suggestions before accepting an answer.

What you suggest might be a good solution. Basically use Aegisub to get the timing right and then edit the file on a text editor to fix for special characters, etc. I'll play a bit with the suggestions posted here, and then give an update on which combination seemed to work the best.

On a second try, I'm having some better luck with this app. First it seems that you need to have some particular version of mplayer installer, and then one has to click on preferences, wizard to have the program find the path to mplayer. If only the error message would be more informative the first time! Will update later if I have success using this app.

Thanks for the suggestion, but this is a personal video; the subtitles of my video probably wont be available anywhere unless I type them first.

No idea either, I've sent an email to the developer and see if I have any luck.

Although Subs Factory has a very ugly interface, it does seem to be functional and I was able to quickly add a couple of subtitles to my video. My biggest problem with this app is that (for some bizarre reason) neither the meter nor the subtitle display work; so the only way to see if the subtitles appear at the appropriate moment is to save the subtitles file and then load both the video and subtitles in something like VLC. Not very good for a long-ish project!
