Google Video and YouTube have made it possible to add machine-generated captions automatically to your YouTube videos. The advantages are explained pretty succintly in this quote from a Google blog posting: “… captions not only help the deaf and hearing impaired, but with machine translation, they also enable people around the world to access video content in any of 51 languages. Captions can also improve search and even enable users to jump to the exact parts of the videos they’re looking for.”
The blog posting also includes a video that explains how to enable automatic captions.
