How To Use TikTok Auto Captions To Make Your Videos More Accessible

At the moment, the auto captions feature is available only in American English and Japanese, but support for additional languages is planned for the near future.

Over the years, TikTok has launched a number of accessibility features to make its video-sharing social networking service more accessible, including options to skip photosensitive content and convert text to voice. Now, TikTok is launching one of its most-requested features: TikTok auto captions. Aimed primarily at deaf or hard of hearing users, the automatic captions feature can automatically generate subtitles for videos with a simple tap on the corresponding option in the editing page.

In addition to people with a hearing disability, automatic captions can also help users who don’t suffer from any hearing impairment enjoy TikTok content better in situations when turning up the volume isn’t an option.

“Inclusivity is important because when people feel included, they’re more comfortable expressing themselves and engaging with their community,” states Stephanie Hind, the Creator Management and Operations of Top Creators and Public Figures at TikTok. “We’re committed to fostering an inclusive app environment, and that means building products and tools that support our diverse community.”

Turning On TikTok Auto Captions As A Viewer

To turn on TikTok auto captions as a viewer, all you need to do is:

  1. Click the share icon and look for a captions option on the bottom row.
  2. Next, click the captions option to activate autogenerated captions or switch between available languages.

At the moment, the feature is available only in American English and Japanese, but support for additional languages is planned for the near future.

TikTok auto captions can be enabled only on videos whose creators have manually activated the feature. Here’s how that works from the creator’s point of view:

  1. The creator records a video and moves to the editing page.
  2. There, the creator taps the captions button on the right side and turns on automatic captions, allowing viewers to enable them when watching the video.

TikTok isn’t the only video-sharing social networking service with support for automatic transcriptions of speech to text. Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook also have similar features. Prior to the most recent update, TikTokers relied on manually added text overlays and the “Siri” text to speech feature as workarounds.

Samsung’s New Exynos 2200 Smartphone Chip Comes With AMD Xclipse GPU

The new GPU will enable next-level mobile gaming experiences, support 200 MP camera sensors, and ensure smooth performance under all circumstances.

Samsung’s Exynos smartphone series of ARM-based system-on-chips (SoCs) traditionally comes with Mali GPUs, but the company’s new premium SoC is breaking this tradition by featuring an Xclipse GPU with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture.

The new GPU, together with 8 Armv9 CPU cores (1 powerful Cortex-X2 core, 3 balanced Cortex-A710 cores, and 4 efficient Cortex-A510 cores) and an upgraded neural processing unit (NPU), are supposed to enable next-level mobile gaming experiences, support camera sensors with a resolution of up to 200 MP, and generally ensure smooth performance under all circumstances.

“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung named its new GPU “Xclipse” to reflect the fact that it’s positioned between console and traditional mobile graphic processors. The South Korean conglomerate believes that the GPU will bring an end to the old era of mobile gaming and usher in a new era characterized by features that have until now been associated primarily with PC gaming, such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading.

According to David Wang, Senior Vice President of Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, the Xclipse GPU is the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs, so fans of Samsung smartphones have a lot to look forward to in the future.

In addition to the already mentioned performance-oriented improvements, the Exynos 2200 integrates a better 5G modem capable of achieving speeds of up to 10 Gbps by utilizing both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals at the same time. The SoC’s Integrated Secure Element (iSE) can safely store cryptographic information for enhanced data security and privacy.

The Exynos 2200 is currently being mass-produced, and it’s expected that it will be one of the main selling points of the upcoming Galaxy S22 smartphone.
