Twitter Brings Voice Tweets to iOS and Promises to Add Auto-Subtitles by 2021 – Review Geek



An illustration of Twitter's Voice Tweet feature.

Do you remember Voice Tweets, the experimental feature that allows some users to post voice memos on your feed? Well, Twitter hasn̵

7;t given up on voice tweets! In fact, voice tweets are made available on the website for all iOS users. Twitter also plans to add transcriptions for voice tweets, a feature that will make audio posts more accessible and potentially less annoying.

Sorry, I didn’t mean that! 😜 The first tests for voice tweets started in June 2020 with a lukewarm reception. Most users ignored the feature, but many pointed out that voice tweets are not accessible to the deaf or hard of hearing. The feature lacks any kind of closed captioning or automatic transcription – something Twitter should have expected given that users and advocates of disabilities routinely require the platform to add automatic captions to videos.

During the fallout on Voice Tweet accessibility, Twitter admitted that there is no dedicated disability team! It now has two accessibility teams ensuring that all users are doomed equally and that new features are accessible on the go.

Well, maybe not all New features. Voice tweets, available to all iOS users, won’t have automated subtitles until “early 2021”. Presumably, Twitter plans to add voice captions to its videos at the same time.
