I haven't tried it yet, but last night on NPR I heard an interview with
YouTube's caption mastermind. He indicated that the new automatic
captioning system is online and working; AND, although its
speech-recognition system is anything but perfect, it offers a quick way
for someone to caption a video, then go back and edit the
transcript/caption file to clean up the errors made by the speech
recognition process to end up with a cleanly captioned video with
relatively little effort. It's on my list of things to try out when I
have a few spare minutes...

Hope this helps,

Hello All:

I have a number of videos I want to caption. I know a good deal about
the different tools out there but I wanted to get feedback on the
quickest way at this point, to caption material. The system that Sean &
John demonstrated at AHG was very impressive but I don't know if this is
open to those not affiliated with Stanford. It seems that YouTube has a
tool for automatically generating captions or am I wrong on this.
Anyway, thanks in advance for your feedback.
