TikTok’s new captions and translation features are all about accessibility

This Digital Trends article covers a TikTok announcement about new accessibility tools coming to the social media platform. It is currently on a gradual roll-out and is only available on select videos.

Viewers will now have the option to turn on auto-generated captions for videos – something that only creators have been able to do until now.

TikTok will also be supporting translations for captions and for ‘stickers’ that creators embed in their videos. The following languages will be supported initially, with more to come: English, Portuguese, German, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, and Turkish.
