Hi there,

Here is the URL for the video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxxRAHVtafI

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for this great request, Rajaram - and for your always
interesting contributions in the discussion list of the CCAC -
<http://ccacaptioning.org/>.

From your YouTube URL, I made the
<http://www.amara.org/en/videos/xu70OBjdOVxY/info/behind-the-mic-the-science-of-talking-with-computers/>
page and added it to the Captions Requested team
(<http://www.amara.org/en/teams/captions-requested/>).

It's a fascinating video, unfortunately this week I have a long text
to translate, but hopefully some other team members will start on its
captions.

Funny that Google, who uploaded this video about the history and
present state of speech recognition to YouTube, disabled their own
speech-recognition-based captions for it.

Best,

Claude Almansi

And now Michael Shepard has already brilliantly captioned it in
<http://www.amara.org/en/videos/xu70OBjdOVxY/en/827640/>: thank you
and congratulations, Michael, if you are reading this.

Best,

Hi Claude,

Been a while since we spoke :).

Yes, its ironic that the google video about speech recognition has the auto-captions disabled.

And, many thanks to Michael for captioning it soon.

Good Day Guys..
