How to fix incorrect youtube cc and transcript?


I've posted a video on youtube with lots of speaking, and some of the captions that are automatically generated by youtube aren't correct. How can I change them?


Youtube makes it really easy to create accessible videos with transcriptions. As you have noticed, however, they aren't always perfect. Luckily it is very easy to fix, and they have a great article on how to do it. To summarize:

  1. Go to the video you want to change in the video manager, click 'Edit', and then 'Subtitles and CC'.
  2. Here you can edit any part of the captions you would like. Then hit save.
