YouTube Rolls Out Auto Captioning to All Videos

YouTube Rolls Out Auto-Captioning to All Videos

It's a sad state of affairs when the tens of millions of people with hearing impairments around the world can't enjoy the latest YouTube meme. It's this fact that led YouTube to roll out auto-captioning to all of its users' videos. Announced today, YouTube will be harnessing the power of Google Voice Search's algorithms, allowing users to easily download the auto-captioned texts to videos, and even correct the auto-generated text.

Eventually, you'll be able to caption videos in different languages, but for now, auto-captioning is available for English-speakers and can be translated into 50 different languages. Additionally, you can have past videos captioned with a click of the "request processing" button on your videos' page. Check out the demo video on Google's YouTube page.
