YouTube Offers Free Caption Service


YouTube is releasing a caption service so that those who cannot hear the audio on the site's videos will be able to read along instead. YouTube, a division of Google (GOOG), posted a message on its "Broadcasting Ourselves:) The Official YouTube Blog," saying, "Today, we are opening up auto-captions to all YouTube users. There will even be a "request processing" button for un-captioned videos that any video owner can click on if they want to speed up the availability of auto-captions."
