I've tried to see the feature working at YouTube, but couldn't find the option. May be is not yet released for Argentina?

Thank you Jeff. I think it will be useful for non-professional videos, it will help to get more audience.

I've watched a video this morning with CC option, and was ... hilarious.

CC feature doesn't make a good work on that video at all.
