Let’s check out these tools in detail.
Savesubs is one of the best tools to download subtitles from any YouTube video within moments. The best thing about this tool is that you can show or hide angle brackets, parentheses, curly brackets, square brackets, music notes, etc. before downloading the subtitle to your PC.

By default, it removes all the tags. However, if you want to include them, you will have to expand the Settings and toggle the Remove all tags in subtitles button. The drawback of this tool is that you can translate the subtitle to another language before downloading.

Yousubtitles lets you download the Closed Captions (CC) from any YouTube video. Even after being a free web tool, it offers almost all the essential options that are handy for any user.

Although it doesn’t allow users to download the subsites and Closed Captions in TXT format, you can download it in SRT.
