Google’s Chrome Experiments use JavaScript and some of the latest advances in Internet browsing to allow developers and designers to create immersive beautiful experiences using Google Chrome. The latest experiment allows you to add your subtitles to silent films. Details after the break.

This latest Chrome Experiment is named Peanut Gallery, which was an early 20th century nickname for the most rambunctious seats in the theater, where people would eat cheap peanuts and provide colorful commentary during the show. So, it’s fitting that you get to lend your own voice to select silent films.

The concept is pretty simple. You pick one of the clips provided and record your voice whenever you want within the clip. Your voice gets translated to text within title cards, and at the end you have a film that you can share with your friends. The voice recognition isn’t perfect, but the bad results are pretty funny anyway. Try it for yourself and share the link! Here is an example from Film School Rejects.
