Creating captions for Youtube videos

YouTube has offered automatic captions for years on many of the videos it hosts, with text generated by the same speech recognition algorithms used by other services like Google Voice and Google Now. These “auto-caps” are often a help to educators or those with hearing impairments, but YouTube admits that the quality of the captions created by the speech recognition software can vary from video to video -and may not even work on some clips.
