How to Use TikTok Auto Captions
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Some TikTok creators are manually captioning their own videos in a bid to be more inclusive and accessible. But now TikTok can automatically generate captions for all videos. A creator simply needs to enable them per video.
TikTok is a social application used to create and share videos. Many videos tend to be music-focused, with creators taking advantage of the app’s extensive catalog of sound effects, music clips, and filters to record short dance and lip-sync snippets. But there are countless videos to discover, with various topics. There are DIY and craft videos, comic sketches, and more.
How to Enable Subtitles on a TikTok
The option to add automatic subtitles will appear on the edit page after uploading or recording a video. This feature should make TikTok videos easier to watch for deaf and hard of hearing viewers. This will also benefit people who cannot listen to audio while scrolling through TikTok. Maybe their child is sleeping nearby or maybe they are at an event or somewhere where noise is not allowed.
Creators can edit captions to fix errors, and viewers can turn them off via a captions button on the sharing panel.
