07. Speech to text 2

There was a lot of fanfare last week about the wider introduction of speech-to-text as captioning on YouTube, and finally I found a website that explained it! Unfortunately the service is not available on all videos. But, I hear you say, why would a dyslexic individual be interested. Because this is a step along the technical path. Imagine that instead of watching somebody's video, you uploaded a lecture and you then had access to that text! At the moment, from what I have seen so far, you cannot download the wording, and the text quality is very dependent on sound quality. But the principle is there and worth following.
