A few days ago, Twitter introduced automatic subtitles for voice tweets. Voice Tweeting is a new feature launched last year. After users pointed out that Twitter did not want all types of users to access it, it faced a lot of criticism. For example, for people with impaired vision, deafness, or hearing difficulties, this feature will be difficult to use. To make up for this mistake, Twitter recently introduced automatic subtitles for all voice tweets.

Voice tweets will be published as tweets with audio attachments that people can play. Your current profile photo will be added to your audio attachment as a static picture and will not be refreshed when you update your profile photo. When you click to play, it will automatically minimize the audio dock at the bottom of the screen so that users can continue listening while scrolling through Twitter.

How to use automatic subtitles in voice tweets

First of all, the voice tweet function is currently only available for iOS users, and has not been enabled for Android and Web users. In addition, subtitles will only be automatically generated in a few supported languages. Currently including English, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Arabic, Hindi, French, Indonesian, Korean and Italian. To use automatic captions on voice tweets, follow these simple steps:

  1. Navigate to the voice tweet whose subtitles you want to enable.

  2. Click on the voice tweet thumbnail to start and stop playback.

  3. If you record a voice tweet, subtitles will be automatically generated and appear.

  4. To view subtitles on the web, click CC The button in the upper right corner of the voice tweet window.

  5. The transcript of the voice tweet should now appear on the voice tweet thumbnail.

Twitter stated that it will only automatically generate subtitles for new tweets. Old voice tweets will not support subtitles.
