#CaptionFails: What Did They Really Say? (QUIZ)
If you rely on closed captions to understand what someone is saying in a video, then you’ve probably been frustrated by inaccurate automatic captions.

This produces a highly flawed transcript, with even lower accuracy for footage with poor audio quality, background noise, multiple speakers, speakers with an accent, or proper nouns.
Think you can decipher these video clips using just YouTube’s automatic captions?
