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.

amazon has partnered with music streaming service anghami

Amazon’s Prime subscription service offers an excellent value proposition because it includes not only free shipping but also access to a huge library of songs, among other things. Unfortunately for music lovers in the MENA region, the Amazon Prime music library includes mostly songs from English-speaking countries. But that’s about to change soon because Amazon has partnered with Anghami, the first legal music streaming platform and digital distribution company in the Arab world.

As a result of the new partnership, Prime subscribers in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will automatically get a free six-month subscription to Anghami Plus, a premium subscription service that offers an unlimited access to Anghami’s large content catalog and unlocks extra features such as the ability to play songs offline, display lyrics, and enjoy music in high quality.

“This collaboration with Anghami is a perfect example of how we work together with leading local brands to innovate on members’ behalf, offering them the best experience possible,” said Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa. “We’re excited to see Prime members in both Saudi Arabia and the UAE enjoy Anghami Plus and all it has to offer, alongside other shopping, savings and entertainment benefits already included in their membership”.

The partnership with Amazon is guaranteed to help Anghami realize its global ambitions and compete with other music streaming services, most notably Spotify and Deezer.

Several months ago, Anghami entered into a merger agreement with publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Vistas Media Acquisition Company Inc. The goal is to list Anghami on the New York NASDAQ exchange, giving it access to global growth capital.

Currently, Anghami provides its users access to more than 57 million Arabic and international songs, as well as podcasts and live radio. Amazon Prime subscribers who decide to keep using Anghami can get an additional 50% discount for the next six months.
