Ok so I would've loved for this to work however I think youtube wont let you see bad word captions anymore so it messed it up but if it would've it would have been great!

I haven't tried it for very long, and it's looking good for the text, but I'm watching a video with a guy speaking with a british accent and it's not filtering anything there. I assume that's more of a problem on the youtube side than here, seeing that it creates the captions. If there are any extensions to improve captions on youtube that would be a great benefit to know about.
