Edit video transcripts and captions

Each videoask and video or audio answer you receive automatically generates a transcript.

While we do the best we can to make these as accurate as possible, sometimes things can still get a little funky. Use Edit Words to update strange word combinations and names for immaculate transcripts and captions.
