TikTok launches "auto captions" accessibility feature in NZ

trending 29/09/2021

TikTok have just introduced auto captions, a new feature to help people who are Deaf, Deafblind or hard of hearing better use and enjoy the platform.

Auto captions automatically generate subtitles, allowing viewers to read content. Any creator can add auto captions to their videos. It makes a huge difference in providing a better experience for our Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing community.

You can now select auto captions on the editing page after you've uploaded or recorded a vid so that text is automatically transcribed and displayed on your video. Captions are also able to be edited once they're generated.

The feature is now available in Australia and New Zealand, with additional language support on the way in a couple of months.

How awesome is this?! Making TikTok more accessible for everyone.
