Automatic Captions on YouTube are Now Available in Spanish

Spanish-speakers who find captions useful can now take advantage of YouTube's automatic captions service.

Automatic captions use voice-recognition technology to transcribe captions without human input. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it doesn't. However, I think it is awesome that Google is making captions available in a wide variety of languages.

If you need captions in another language and automatic captions aren't doing it for you, take a look at Amara, formerly known as Universal Subtitles. You can request that a video be captioned or even help out captioning videos in your language.
