In early 2020, Twitter introduced the option to post voice tweets, among other things. It’s a great way for users to use their voice to write their thoughts as an alternative to text. Especially when trying to convey a tone of voice or trying to cross character boundaries on Twitter.
The problem with voice tweeting, however, is that other people who are hearing impaired may not be able to hear what you are saying. This creates accessibility issues. But the good news is that Twitter has announced that they will now auto-publish captions for voice tweets.
Consumers don’t have to do many things alone. All they have to do is record the voice tweet as usual and then other users just have to click the CC button to see the subtitles. However, this appears to be a network function. So if you watch it on a mobile device, it won’t work.
Plus, we can’t really talk about the accuracy of the text. Depending on various factors such as sound quality and accent, this could potentially be as accurate as you’d like, but hopefully, it will improve over time.
