After a year of launching voice tweets, Twitter accompanied the feature with automatic captions for a clarifying experience.
Twitter now generates and displays subtitles automatically for users to read on mobile or website. This improves accessibility alongside the voice feature that “add a more human touch” to the social network.
To use the caption tool in iOS, compose a tweet and tap the purple wavelength icon to record, then add a few lines of explanatory text. Each tweet captures up to 140 seconds of audio and can automatically create a thread for longer messages.
So far, the voice tweets captions feature supports English, Arabic, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Turkish.
To activate subtitles, tap the “CC” icon in the top right corner of new voice tweets. Unfortunately, it won’t support older posts as they cannot be retrofitted.
Twitter promised to release more accessible tools to make the platform ” more inclusive for the disabled community.”
