Note: (Please refer to the main captioning page before reading this page.)
YouTube offers automatic transcription services (which isn't always perfect) and timing functions (which are recommended). Of course, all captioning starts with a recording and a transcript of that recording. The steps for utilizing the YouTube automatic timing is:
- Create a recording (following YouTube standards) and upload to YouTube
- Create the transcript
- Go to MyVideos in YouTube, select the video in step 1 and select Edit
- Select the caption option and uphold the transcript file
The recording's captions (previously the transcript) will be synchronized with the recording.
