Recently, Twitter introduces a new feature that adds subtitles to voice tweets. The company introduced an automatic caption feature as it was criticized by many accessibility advocates for its lack of subtitles. Now Twitter users will see subtitles in every voice tweet found on the platform.
Automatic Caption in various language
Twitter will automatically generate subtitles (For You) in supported languages including English, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Turkish, Hindi, French, Arabic, Indonesian, Korean and Italian.
Gurpreet Kaur, Head of Global Accessibility at Twitter said, “As part of our ongoing work to make Twitter accessible to all, we are introducing automatic captioning for voice tweets on iOS.”
“While this is early days and we know it will not be perfect in the beginning, this is one of many steps we have taken to expand and strengthen the reach of all our ministries, and we look forward to continuing our journey.” Huh. Truly inclusive service. Added Gurpreet.
The new subtitles feature is currently only available for iOS users. It is not yet known when it will be available for Android users as well. If you want to see the subtitles of a Tweeter’s tweet, you will need to tap on the CC icon in the top right corner of the Voice Tweet window.
The sources said that they added that subtitles appear only on new voice tweets, which basically means that all old tweets have no subtitles (Means No Captions on previous Tweets). Twitter’s microblogging site also offers subtitles in the Twitter space.
