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
|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
|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
|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!
