When I started out captioning, I used services like Overstream, and BubbyPly. They used an overlay concept, similar to Amara. I captioned over 600 videos on Overstream – things like news stories about Marlee Matlin , but more than 200 of them have had their sources removed.
Other services have gone away. Downloading, captioning and uploading is time consuming.
