YouTube original launched captioning back in November 2009 but it was limited to small groups of educational institutions. Now that feature has made it to everyones account. I’m glad Google sees the need for this and that they have opened it up to everyone. We all know that speech to text isn’t perfect but it’s a good start in reaching an audience that normally wouldn’t be able to enjoy the content. Any mistakes that Google makes can be edited by the content owner. By doing that Google will learn from it’s mistakes and make the system better. I’m going to have to try this on my videos.
