For Apple iPhone users, Twitter is testing a new feature that allows them to turn on or off captions with a single button. According to the company, Android users will soon be able to take advantage of the new feature. The company made the announcement in a tweet from their official account. In the near future, iOS and Android users will be able to choose between video captions or no captions. Using a new “CC” button, we’re experimenting with turning off or on captions on videos that have them.
If the feature is implemented, users will be able to see a new “CC” button at the top right corner of the video, according to the video shared by the platform. As a reminder, the button will only appear on videos with closed-captioning turned on.
Twitter also recently introduced a new accessibility feature that will help users better comprehend the content of an image. A new option has been added to the bottom right of the screen for users to access. When a user taps on it, they can access the image description. It is possible for people with disabilities to contribute to Twitter by adding image descriptions. This is especially important for people who are blind and/or visually impaired.
A new feature that Twitter is developing will allow users to edit tweets after they have been posted. For the time being, the feature will only be available to Twitter Blue subscribers. The company’s announcement was initially taken as a joke because it was posted on April Fools’ Day. As time has progressed, the company has provided additional details on the feature.
