The following Google I/O 2011 video is highlighting "The YouTube Caption API, Speech Recognition, and WebVTT captions for HTML5".

As the session's title suggests, a number of different topics were covered, with video accessibility and captions the common theme throughout.

"The material covering the YouTube Captions API, including a sample application that demonstrates using the API from Python, will be of particular interest to the YouTube API developer community.

The talk also includes some early WebKit demos of WebVTT implementations for the <track> element in HTML5 as well as more information and stats about the Live Caption gadget launched at Google I/O. The gadget provides captions alongside streaming video."
