YouTube has announced that it is adding some updates to its captions and audio features, which will be available in the coming months.
“Manufacturers can now enable live auto captions for any live stream in English to make the streams more inclusive and accessible,” the company said in a statement.
Previously, this feature was only available for channels with 1,000+ subscribers, but now the company has removed that requirement.
In the coming months, YouTube Live Auto Captions plans to expand to 13 supported automatic caption languages.
The company is also launching automatic translations for captions in languages supported on Android and iOS later this year. Currently, it is only available on the desktop.
Later this year, YouTube will test the option to type in the search bar at the top of the transcript to find specific keywords.
The company is also testing the ability to add multiple audio tracks to their videos that will help creators deliver audio in multiple languages to an international audience with the help of a small group, as well as provide descriptive audio for the blind or visually impaired.
Earlier, YouTube announced that it was launching new ways to help users find and search content more easily on the platform.
The company says it has begun to make the search page more visual to help people get a better idea of what’s inside a video.
