Hi,

one way to add closed captions would be using Louis von Ahn peekaboo
method. E.g. a coop game where you show like 10 seconds of video and
you have to type in what is being said. If it matches than you caption
that part of the video with the found caption file. He also developed
CAPTCHA and you could use that technique also to either help
captioning of videos or recognizing scanned text.

cheers Eelke
