See which Youtube videos have sub­ti­tles

Web User - - Best New Browser Tools -

Youtube’s au­to­matic cap­tion­ing of videos – or ‘sub­ti­tling’, as we say in the UK – is one of the site’s most use­ful fea­tures, es­pe­cially if you’re hard of hear­ing or are watch­ing with the sound off. How­ever, not all videos have sub­ti­tles – per­haps due to poor sound qual­ity or be­cause the cre­ator has turned them off – and oth­ers may of­fer ‘closed cap­tions’ in sev­eral lan­guages. A new add-on called Youtube Cap­tion In­di­ca­tor ( bit.ly/cap­tion433) ad­dresses this by adding lan­guage-spe­cific sub­ti­tle in­di­ca­tors to every video that ap­pears in the ‘ Up next’ list. Just look for the ‘CC’ next to the video to see whether closed cap­tions have been gen­er­ated au­to­mat­i­cally, tran­scribed man­u­ally in English or another lan­guage or don’t ap­pear at all. You’ll still have to click the Sub­ti­tles but­ton on the video’s menu bar to ac­ti­vate the option.
