Twitter is introducing auto-generated subtitles for videos, which is another step toward making the network more accessible. This will support “most languages” and will be available on both mobile and online.

Nonetheless, there will be certain limits to this functionality, some of which will hopefully be rectified in future releases. Twitter is doing this to improve accessibility features after getting criticism for not having a dedicated staff since.

About Twitter’s auto-generated captions

These auto-generated subtitles will begin to appear on new videos posted to the site. Captions will be displayed on muted videos for mobile apps.
You can unmute them by modifying the accessibility settings on your device. Captions can be switched on and off in the online version by clicking the CC button.
One of the new feature’s restrictions is that captions are only created for videos that have recently been posted to the platform.

Another restriction is that you cannot modify or replace the captions, and there is no method to report incorrect captions. We hope they act quickly to change this.

The auto-generated captions are gradually being sent out to Android and iOS users, as well as to Twitter’s online version. So, if you haven’t already seen it, you’ll have to wait a little longer. One of the new feature’s restrictions is that captions are only created for videos that have recently been posted to the platform.
