YouTube Gets Automatic Captioning For All Videos – Youtube automatic captioning – Gizmodo

Today, YouTube is rolling out automatic captioning for all videos uploaded to the service, using Google’s speech recognition service. You can see a demo in the video above.

Automatic captioning with Google speech recognition was launched in November. This only had a few selected education partners to test out automatic captioning, until now.

There are many reasons for captions on every video: ESL viewers, people in other countries, searchability, not wanting to disturb others, loud locations and automatic translations to other countries
