*TIP:  Be sure to use the full URL from your address bar and not the shortened YouTube share URL.

2.  As your video plays, the captions will show up underneath.  Click in any of the captions to edit words.  Words in orange mean YouTube auto-captioning is somewhat unsure of the accuracy of the translation while words in red mean YouTube auto-captioning is very unsure of the accuracy of the translation.  When you have fixed a problem, click the Update Captions button and re-start the video to move on.
