How To Enable Autogenerate Captions/Subtitles On YouTube Videos | Transcription

YouTube provides the feature of generating auto captions or transcription of videos. YouTube claims that there is 95% accuracy rate. It auto detects the language and generates the captions.

There are some limitations as well like if the audio quality of video is poor it doesn't generate captions.

Accuracy is not 100%, so make sure to review the captions twice, thrice.
