Universal Subtitles aims to caption or translate every web video
“PCF is creating Universal Subtitles, an open standard protocol that will allow clients such as Firefox extensions, desktop video players, websites, or browsers to find and download matching subtitles from a whitelist of subtitle databases when they play video. But first, the company needs the subtitles. That’s where you come in. Volunteers are needed to use the Universal Subtitles user-friendly interface to write/add captions and subtitles to almost any video on the web (no re-transcoding required). PCF says its mission is to make captioning, subtitling, and translating video publicly accessible in a way that’s free and open, just like the Web.”
