Google is now letting anyone use its new auto-captioning feature for YouTube videos. Back in November, YouTube released a robo-transcription option for just a limited number of educational channels, saying it would expand the tool to more videos in the future. Well, the future is now and has begun rolling out across the entire …
New keyboard please.

The Final Solution?
So, does this mean that we'll finally find out what Hitler is really saying in his bunker?
see later AC post for confirmation
Who'd have thunk it
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
... by English I think you mean American. So far it has proven to be hopelessly awful on any of our footage, with no background noise. Unusable. Damn.
For some unknow reasion I thinks that everything that I talk about is about USA Presidents with there name just keep on popping up here and there again and again. Sorry but I not talking politics or anything like and nothing about USA. Really it funny, watch then and will not be able to keep the laughter in.
Look for any rants there few I have been told on YouTube.
I don't really understand that.
However I can't think of a word to described that which I can't understand. Could anyone help me?
Sometimes it works perfectly (even with translations)
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.
Oh, this will be great with Valentina Hasan (check on YouTube)
"a 14-year-old's video diary: nigh incompressible"
I think you meant incomprehensible...
Wonder how it will get on with a good "Valleys" accent?
Eye sea whot ewe did their ;)
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.
I look forward to all the Pr0n videos being accompanied by auto-generated adverts from pet stores offering cheap cats and chickens.
Non Ecc Auto Captions
What if A new Video Message Of Osama Is Translated as Message From President Obama
America Is Going To Pay For It
I just Can t wait For That To Happen (********LoL*********)
14 year old blahblahblah nigh incompressible??????
Would that be due to the high efficiency of the codecs used?
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.
Its better than I thought it'd be, pretty good, but useless (funny) at techy terms.
It kept saying -
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...
