Interactive Transcripts on YouTube

If you click the video, YouTube actually has an ‘interactive transcript’ option that bolds lines as they’re sung, and clicking on a line will take you to that segment of the video. I think this is probably the best way to include translations on YouTube. I mean, how else will I see line by line what a Persian song means?
