It comes with play, stop, next, and previous buttons to control the playing subtitles. A settings icon is also available that helps to set the opacity of its interface.

Before running the software, it prompts you to add *.srt file to play. After adding the srt file, its interface will be visible to you. As soon as the mouse cursor is moved away from its interface, it becomes transparent automatically. However, it doesn’t hide controls, but makes them transparent upto an extent.
