Twitter is gradually rolling out a new CC button that offers its users the ability to switch on or off the Closed Captions for a video. Previously, subtitles would just vanish if audio was unmuted.
Videos on Instagram will have auto-generated captions, and the feature will be enabled for all. Users can choose subtitles from 17 languages. The AI should get better with more users and languages.
After a year of criticism, Twitter is finally introducing automatically generated captions to the voice tweets feature. The latest improvement addresses accessibility concerns for iOS users.
TikTok creators will soon be able to add automatically generated captions to their videos. The option will appear on the editing page after a video has been uploaded or recorded by the creator.
Google Duo has been updated to add caption support for recorded voice and video messages that could be useful in noisy environments. It is available in both Android and iOS versions of the app.
