YouTube Launching Auto-Captions For Videos

Posted Mar 4, 2010

YouTube is adding a feature to their website that would allow people to read captions for any video uploaded in English. While the caption system is not perfect, it would still allow deaf people and people around the world that can translate English to their own language to understand what is happening in YouTube videos. The technology is not available to all English videos as of yet, but uploaders will soon have the option to manually request their older videos to get transcribed. [TechCrunch]
