Here is what the auto-generated subtitles display:

We're not archaic, are we, Catherine?
We're not archaic, Neil, apart from your telephone.

Could you help me correct and punctuate the subtitles? (the same video as above)

Here is what I have done:

---------

... in the past sailors on very long sea voyages - months at a time - would get scurvy because they didn't know how to prevent it but you don't ...

... although these patients also have diabetes, which means you have to watch
what you have to be careful, what you eat, so that may be a factor ...

so come back - a return of something after a period of time. ...

Right, so if you've got an example of a comeback concert? I have: Michael Jackson hadn't done any concerts for quite a long time ...

I have added ... because she changes her mind- she starts saying you have to watch, then changes to say that you have to be careful what you eat.

The others are OK.

... and the preposition use is quite interesting because you've got a couple of options
for a change ...

1 Why not put um before sort as he does say it? I can't hear the bit after from the either.

2 You're right.

Well said.

I can't hear the bit after from the either.

Neil: ... it's also got a sense of ... um ... sort of gathering pace ... (I do hear him murmuring something when Catherine is saying 'yes'.)
Catherine: yes, yes yes yes, so the ...

2 You're right.

But '
the preposition use is quite interesting' sounds ungrammatical. Should it be 'the preposition's use is quite interesting'?

(update)

I think it is more about 'Ask a Teacher'. So I decide to post it on that sub-forum. See here.

He does murmur something, which sounds as if it ends in -ity, but I cannot catch what is said and I have played it many times.

... so it's really good word to say why ... why is it here now, because it's from the past, yeah. ...
---------------------
Are the words that
Catherine said ungrammatical? I think it should be:

... so it's a really good word to say why ... why it is here now ...

1 When speaking, we often say things that would not work in writing. Speech is messy and often improvised- we chop, we change, etc. These things are simply characteristic of spoken English. You can't edit and delete things from speech, which you can do in writing, so it is inevitably going to be messier.

2 Yes
