Ms Pacman Has Hearing Difficulties

This March, You Tube implemented a system whereby certain videos would be given auto-generated subtitles, presumably for the hard of hearing. This technology is based on a speech recognition system which automatically transcribes the audio of a video translates it to text subtitles at the bottom. It is rarely, if ever, accurate. Nice idea, though.

This afternoon, I noticed that closed captioning was available for a video of the last four levels of Ms Pacman who, herself, seems to suffer from hearing difficulties...
