Get instant access to YouTube's automatic captions. Transcribe/caption in DIY Captions, TranscriptionPad, Amara, or oTranscribe.
This extension is intended to make it really easy to open up any YouTube video in one of three editors for transcribing or producing captions or subtitles of YouTube videos.
One of those editors, DIY Captions, attempts to import YouTube's automatic captions for videos for which no captions have been created professionally. This can dramatically reduces the amount of manual typing necessary to produce transcripts, captions, or subtitles.
The extension also allows direct launch of the oTranscribe and Amara editors.
oTranscribe is an online transcription tool for producing transcripts of audio files or YouTube videos.
Amara is an editing tool for creating captions or translated subtitles for videos, including YouTube videos. Captions saved in the Amara system can be viewed directly in YouTube using the "Subtitles for YouTube Chrome" extension by Yash Agarval. You can add Yash's extension to Chrome by visiting the page below.
Consulting and training in the use of these three editors can be arranged by emailing Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
