YouTube extends its auto-captioning service

YouTube logoYouTube, the internet’s biggest video sharing website, has extended its subtitling service for all users.

The auto-captioning service will be a massive boost for the UK’s nine million people with hearing impairments.

The service automatically generates video captions when requested by a viewer.
Video owner can also download the auto-generated captions, improve them, and upload the new version.

Viewers will soon be able to choose to translate the captions into any one of 50 different languages – and all in just a couple of clicks.

Emma Harris, director of external affairs with the Royal National Institute for Deaf People, said:

“Captioning will significantly help people with a hearing loss understand video content and increase their ability to share experiences of watching those in which speech plays a prominent part.”
