Twitter is at long last carrying out auto-captions for voice tweets

Twitter carried out voice tweets longer than a year prior now and has taken a great deal of warmth for the absence of availability features. Presently, it’s at long last carrying out automatically created captions that seem when you click on the “CC” button. The new feature is just accessible on iOS, as voice tweets still can’t seem to show up on Android.

Captions are accessible in English, Japanese, Portuguese, Turkish, Arabic, Hindi, French, Indonesian, korean and Italian. They will just show up on new voice tweets, as they should be produced when the tweet is made, Twitter told.

At the point when voice tweets were first being tested last June, pundits quickly called attention to that they ought to have had captions from the beginning as needed in the US by Federal Law. Twitter then, at that point admitted that it didn’t have a devoted availability team and depended on workers to give extra an ideal opportunity for those features. From that point forward, nonetheless, the organization has launched groups devoted to accessibility. The organization initially vowed to add automated captions by mid 2021, however that date clearly slipped a bit.

Twitter vowed to improve and grow the service across its products. “Though it’s still early and we know it won’t be perfect at first, it’s one of many steps we’re taking to expand and strengthen accessibility across our service, and we look forward to continuing our journey to create a truly inclusive service,” said Twitter’s global accessibility head Gurpreet Kaur.
