Captioned YouTube videos

Closed captions on YouTube can either be provided by the owner of the video or are automated captions which use speech recognition software to transcribe the video.

For a video to have the options of auto-captions, the video owner must have first requested auto-captions on a video. The speech recognition track can take a few days to become available to viewers. Video owners can also disable auto-captions once they’re activated.
