Youtube Offers Interactive Transcripts
Online video users can now skim through long videos by browsing through text.
Youtube has made announcements about the upcoming video caption features in an effort to increase the accessibility of videos for users that speak different languages or have hearing disabilities.
They’ve now introduced an interactive transcript feature that allows viewers to scan through the text and jump to specific sections of the video. While captions can be auto-generated, owners of the video can upload a more accurate transcript, which the system will then use to auto generate time stamps.
