DIY Captions is a web-based tool for easily correcting Google's machine transcriptions of spoken YouTube video content, known as "automatic captions" or "autogenerated captions." Corrected text can be downloaded as a .srt file or copied to the clipboard as plain text. A segmenting editor makes it easy to break up the text into the chunks that will be used in the captions.

Captions saved in the Amara system can be viewed directly in YouTube using either the Subtitles for YouTube Chrome extension
