back to article YouTube: Auto-captions for everyone

Google is now letting anyone use its new auto-captioning feature for YouTube videos.

We're going to have so much fun testing this.

1. Presence of filter (fock shet puss cont)

2. Depth of knowledge (scrutum vogina mastorbation)

3. Knowledge of correct English (wonker bellocks tusser)

4. False positives (wonkel rotary engine, sconthorpe united, tony hancuck)

5. False false positives (getifu ye basa)

6. Regional linguistic variations (Kersal Massive)

All your base belong to us

This is far too funny

Watch a video that a liverpudlian is speaking in.

Watch it fail like a bitch.

Its really hilarious when it fails. It gets so far off it may as well be AOL.

It's not about the giving

All the people who correct the dodgy transcriptions will be callibrating Google's algorithms, which may eventually be used to transcribe every phone call.

All those spoken words ...

... now translated into written words can now be transformed into adverts, magic! And what's even better is that the video owners can help clarify all the dialogue that is then turned into targeted advertising.

Nvidia posted vid

Nvidia posted a vid about that GPU that can be pulled out of a running system when it switched between the GPU and on-board video, Optimus I think.

I noticed the auto-captioning thing and tried it out.

Great news.

I welcome this warmly and think there should be more around for us that have hearing deficits.

Occasionly the captioning on the BBC news is pretty amusing anyway...
