Like a Chinese Star Wars Bootleg...



I’m not sure how long the auto closed captioning feature has been available on YouTube, but I just noticed it today. My first instinct was to go play the Playlist video about my photography with the volume off and auto-generated closed captioning on to experience it like a deaf person.

Given my mud-mouth accent I earned by living in rural Wisconsin for most of my life I didn’t expect much, and it didn’t disappoint. The resulting caption text read like a Chinese Star Wars bootleg, only perhaps a bit more nonsensical.
