Twitter for iOS has begun rolling out Live Captions for voice tweets

The microblogging giant, Twitter, has launched a new very interesting feature where you can now see live captions on voice tweets. According to reports, Twitter had rolled out the voice tweets feature in June 2020, but it was received with some criticism for not having captions so as to easily understand the words in more eased fashion. This feature supports many languages and among them some are: English, Spanish Turkish, Arabic, Japanese, Portuguese, French, Italian, Indonesian etc

Twitter announced on their platform that they have taken all the feedback into consideration and after long weeks of research, they have rolled this feature out for iOS users. How this feature basically works is when you voice tweet anytime now, it automatically identifies and generates live captions in all different languages that are on their radar and provides captions for the person to listen and understand.

This feature comes after heavy competition from other social media platforms like Facebook and Clubhouse introducing various new features. And like Clubhouse offers audio rooms, Twitter has its own of the same sort named Spaces which was launched very recently. The company also shut down its other feature, Fleets from August 3rd, owing to the fact that it wasn’t much of a success anyway.

Twitter’s head of Global Accessibility, Gurpreet Kaur, said that to make twitter more accessible for everyone, they are rolling this feature out early and they know it will not be the most perfect feature during the initial stages, their objective is to create a more inclusive space where people from different cultures and countries and can understand each other online and can communicate in a convenient fashion.

These changes occur after Twitter created a separate Global Accessibility department last September, until when it was just random employees volunteering to do the work required for the accessibility of the platform. According to reports, Twitter are already working further and plan to bring out live captions for the newly launched Twitter Spaces as well but this news is to be taken with a pinch of salt as nothing is confirmed or official yet and there is no given timeframe for the upgrade at the moment.
