Twitter rolls out auto captions for voice tweets after accessibility backlash

The feature is available on iOS.

Twitter on Thursday turned on automated captions for voice tweets on iOS following criticism that the feature, which debuted last year, wasn’t accessible to people with disabilities. 

“We took your feedback and we’re doing the work. To improve accessibility features, captions for voice Tweets are rolling out today,” Twitter said in a tweet. “Now when you record a voice Tweet, captions will automatically generate and appear. To view the captions on web, click the ‘CC’ button.”

Twitter began testing voice tweets last summer, but many criticized the social media platform for not taking all users’ needs into consideration before the release.
