"YouTube [has] added a cool feature for videos with closed captions: you can now click on the "transcript" button to expand the entire listing. If you click on a line, YouTube will show the excerpt from the video corresponding to the text."

I'm not sure is this new and fresh

It's available for days now. I'm still searching for any interest for that, as I bet your screen isn't big enough to see both the video and the transcript together without scrolling.

Jérôme even created a post on this forum about that, three days ago.

Someone sent the tip 5 days ago, but I couldn't post it at that time. Here's a use case: search inside a video using your browser's find feature (Ctrl+F). Another use case: music lyrics / karaoke.

Thanks for pointing to the specific thread (the duplicate finder doesn't generated a warning either) and for the background info.
