I was really excited to see on my news feed today that YouTube will begin automatic captioning for videos. The captioning will be using voice recognition (like Google Voice does) to caption videos. The link: Official Google Blog: Automatic captions in YouTube
I love YouTube, but mostly only for music, where I can pull up the lyrics as I go - I've always been wary of watching anything involving people talking. Automatic captioning, while being rolled out for a few select sponsors right now, will eventually help me and others to be more confident in watching any kind of YouTube videos.
