@livingat45north, I just watched the video. At the beginning of the video, they show "Captioning is autogenerated by Streamer". So, it appears that Streamer can predict what will be said since the captions appear before the dialect. Am I missing something by their claim that "Captioning is autogenerated"?

Yes, your confusing live captioning which is shown as a person is speaking, with captioning that is displayed when viewing a previously recorded video. Streamer does both. If you view the closed captioning on a pre-recorded video (which is what you're doing), during the live event the words were generated by Streamer along with timestamps that state when the words should appear in that recorded video, In YouTube, that type of file format is called an SRT file. In the second half of that video they show how the live captioning appears, about a half-second after the person says the word.
