I misspoke in the middle of a video I uploaded to YouTube and I'd like to insert a text annotation into the video (at that point) to clarify the error.

I've already posted the video-link to a forum for the parties who will be watching it, so I'd like to achieve this annotation without invalidating that link (which is what would happen if I removed the video, added the annotation offline, and re-uploaded it.)

Is it possible, using the editor provided by YouTube, to insert a text annotation at any arbitrary point?

The tutorials I've found, regarding this task, are outdated and no longer work.

The Annotations editor have been removed from YouTube. You can no longer add text annotations, only cards and end screens.
