YouTube’s Close Captioning results in word salad – but it’s easy to fix. Here is a pictorial on it – it’s not pretty, but hope it’s useful. Needed to do this in a hurry:
Step 1: Run Captions, let YouTube do its thing. When finished, play again and see result. Click Edit Captions and Subtitles.
Step 2: Click The pencil to view the machine transcription
Step 3: I don’t bother editing here – I like to edit in my own software. Click the download button.
Step 3b. Download and save the SVB file.
Step 4. Edit the file in a plain text editing program like Notepad or I use Notepad ++. Save it.
Step 5: Upload your file
and name it
Step 6: Disable the YouTube word salad track
Step 7: Tweak colours and backgrounds
