As a side note, I found recently that YouTube audio captions for
presentations (from http://www.inclusivedesign24.org/) were often more
accurate than the live captions we received (and are currently
uploading). So this definitely depends (and I have a feeling that the
accuracy of these auto captions has increased quite dramatically, no
doubt due to advances in speech recognition solutions).
