Automatic Captions and Translation in Youtube.

YouTube has announced the machine-generated captions(with automatic speech recognition) in English. Just try the MIT, Columbia, Google and YouTube channels.
Click on the menu button at the bottom right of the video player, then click CC and the arrow to its left, then click the new "Transcribe Audio" button. If you want to translate the captions to your own language then click "Translate Captions". The translation is not perfect, but generally you get the meaning. We just hope this feature to be expanded for many more YouTube videos. To learn more about how to use auto-caps and auto-timing, check out youtube help center and below video.
