YouTube have automatic captions

Google announced today that YouTube will be able to automatically include captions in videos.
"The captions will not always be perfect", says Google, "but even when they're off, they can still be helpful - and the technology will continue to improve with time". Google has combined its automatic speech recognition (also used in Google Voice) with the YouTube caption system that will ensure seamless automatic captions. For those who are still interested in manual captions, Google also announced auto-timing, which makes it easier to create a simple text file of the words in a video, then couple that with Google’s technology to match up words and video. This will help with those who don’t want to take the chance of having an occasional “off” word generated by Google’s automatic speech recognition.
