We need to bring back captions, but they MUST be professionally done. I'm so sick of seeing idiots and useless jokes and commentary into the captions for shits and giggles. It's not funny. It's a mockery of people who need them. If YouTube wants to stop the problems, go after the people abusing captions instead of getting rid of them altogether. They need to have proper grammar, spelling, timing and not miss any of the dialogue.

Community captions (if captioned correctly) can be a big help to people that can't hear, or don't speak a certain language. And auto captions (while admittedly getting better) are still not good enough to be used all the time. So until captions are at least mostly correct, let people use THEIR OWN TIME AND EFFORT to personally and accurately caption videos.

It was the best feature of the website, a way for anyone to share his knowledge and his culture to those who cannot understand the language....

I feel very sad when Youtube removed community captions. This locks so many viewers out of the experience. I hope undo this.
