YouTube has included an automatic caption

You Tube Generation

Employees YouTube have decided to facilitate a life to the users, wishing to supply the videoclips with a caption. Two new functions Here announced: an autocaption and autotiming.

Automatic Captions by Google Voice

Autocaption is an automatic creation of a caption by speech recognition. The same technology, as in Google Voice is thus used. Developers recognise, that results at times can be rather far from perfect, however nothing prevents to finish then them to mind manually, and "the technology will be improved in due course".

Autotiming will allow to adhere automatically a caption from a text file to certain time intervals of a videoclip. Usually the binding should be carried out manually, feeding service a file where to each text line there correspond data about time of the beginning and the end of demonstration of this line. With autotiming data about time it is possible not to give, the algorithm will independently compare a caption with a sound number (that too can demand some operational development manually).

Both functions at present exclusively English-speaking, and about when they are internationalised, yet do not speak to us. Nevertheless even for those who does not know English, can appear useful and an English caption: always it is possible to take advantage built in in YouTube of function of machine translation of a caption.

Autocaption in the limited mode

Autocaption while is started in the limited mode — only on certain partner channels, — as developers realise imperfection of this function. Autotiming, on the contrary, at once it will be accessible to any English-speaking videoclips.
