During the election campaign, I wrote a blog posting about an uplifting video.
At some point, I discovered that YouTube are testing automatic subtitles, i.e., speech recognition, and that it was available for this video.
Here’s is my transcription of the video, together with YouTube/Google’s take on it:
|Now, we want change||We’re going to change|
|It’ll never happen||Yeah|
|I no longer believe the future is in our hands||I mean he thinks is enough|
|I know the media can control us||I knew the meetings’s collapse|
|It’s just not the case that we have a real choice in this election||It’s just not the case real choice incident|
|Instead we have to vote the way we’re told||He said we have to think that way this time|
|No longer do I believe things can be different||You know what it’s like to be seems to be different|
|Vote for change and you waste your vote||They’ve changed at least, thanks|
|Vote for a party you don’t really believe in||They affect us today|
|This is how things have to be||The southeast|
|I don’t accept that a third party could win||I think it sets a sense posturing|
|More and more people are realising that politicians are more powerful than the people||More and more people in real life, Clinton since and powerful the people|
|But what if we could turn things upside down?||But what if we could send things upside down?|
|The people are more powerful than politicians||The people, almost half of those positions|
|More and more people are realising that a third party could win||More and more people realizing that that cost thing|
|I don’t accept that this is how things have to be||I can accept this is how things be|
|Vote for a party you don’t really believe in and you waste your vote||The effect on Saturday the the make sure things|
|Vote for change||Things have changed|
|I believe things can be different||I don’t think so|
|No longer do we have to vote the way we’re told||You don’t have to be that the women’s health|
|Instead we have a real choice in this election||Instead of the UN to lift the sanctions|
|It’s just not the case that the media can control us||It’s just not the case at least told us|
|I know the future is in our hands||Pointed he can’t do not|
|I no longer believe it’ll never happen||You know|
|We want change||He hasn’t changed|
It’s quite shockingly bad, isn’t it?
I have a suspicion that it might have been designed primarily for American English, but I guess the background music didn’t make it easier for the program, either.
I’m very happy I don’t have to rely on those subtitles just yet!
