Convert captions/subtitles from TXT to VTT

VTT (WebVTT) is used for processing, distributing, and transferring a variety of subtitle content in a specific subtitle format. TXT (plain text), however, is a simple language that structures and formats documents containing both time and text details. Occasionally, you may need to convert VTT files, produced by specific unique software, into TXT files to increase their compatibility across multiple platforms.
