Using YouTube's AutoCaption Feature to Generate Captions

YouTube's Auto-Caption feature generates a starting point for uploading corrected captions and their new caption editor makes it easier than before, for your own YouTube videos. (For those you don't own, see the article on Universal Subtitles.)

Many groups and individuals do not have a budget for captioning but want or need to include this access feature.
