Twitter videos now support automatic captions

16 December 2021 0

Twitter is finally adding automatic captions to videos shared on the platform. This will make video content accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing. It will also be beneficial to users when they want to watch a video in public and do not have earphones around. The support will be available on iOS and Android applications as well as the website.

These captions will be available in more than 30 languages including English, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Thai, Chinese, and Hindi. It will be up to the user whether they want to enable auto-captions. The important thing to note is that only newly uploaded videos on the platform will show automatic captions. It means if you will watch a video that was uploaded in the past, it will not have any captions from Twitter.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the video uploader will not be able to edit auto-generated captions. This is something that is possible on Instagram and TikTok. To make things worse, there is also no way to report bad or inaccurate captions as of now. There is a possibility that Twitter may add an edit caption option in the future.

The official announcement says Twitter auto-captions have already begun to roll out. It is a gradual release and may take some time before it becomes available for everyone and on all the devices.
