Just like Facebook and Youtube text caption generator for enabled videos, TikTok adds auto text caption tool to the fast growing company. This is a great improvement and as such expect to see a lot more TikTok videos going forward. TikTok recently announced that it is now offering accessibility tool to creators that will automatically add text captions to uploaded video.
According to the company:
Inclusivity is important because when people feel included, they’re more comfortable expressing themselves and engaging with their community. We’re committed to fostering an inclusive app environment, and that means building products and tools that support our diverse community. As we continue working to make TikTok ever more accessible, today we’re introducing auto captions, a new feature to help people who are hard of hearing or deaf better use and enjoy TikTok.
Auto captions automatically generate subtitles, allowing viewers to read or listen to content. As creators make content, they can select auto captions in the editing page after they’ve uploaded or recorded a video so that text is automatically transcribed and displayed on their videos. Creators have the power to edit the text of their captions once they’re generated
However, TikTok plans to add support for more languages in the coming months.
Live Caption provides real-time captions for audio playing on your device. It works with videos, podcasts, and even phone calls. This comes really handy if you have a hearing impairment or want to watch a video with audio turned off.
Although the feature has so far remained exclusive to Android phones, we know Google has been working on bringing it to the Chrome browser on the desktop for some time now. And today, it’s finally going live for users on the stable Chrome 89.
