Instagram rolls out auto-captioning sticker in Stories

San Francisco: Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram is rolling out a new sticker to Stories that allows English-speaking users to add auto-generated captions to their videos.

The company said it will also start testing automated captions in Reels soon.

Captions have been available in IGTV and the Threads app, and Instagram said it`s adding them to Stories and Reels to make them more efficient and inclusive to watch.

The feature should be a welcome addition for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, are not native English speakers, or just generally watch videos without sound, The Verge reported.

The edit option lists each word of the captions separately. You can tap on individual words to make adjustments.

Like other text options in Stories, users can adjust the style and color of the captions after they`re generated.

People can also edit individual words in the captions to correct spelling, punctuation, or any words that weren`t transcribed accurately.

Auto captions rarely have perfect accuracy, especially for people with accents or atypical speech, so editing is crucial.

There`s currently no option to have the text highlighted for better visual contrast, but you can use the Draw tool or a sticker behind the captions to make them easier to see.

Other platforms and services have recently added or improved auto-captioning options. Zoom, Google Meet and Microsoft Teams all offer automated captions for video calls.

Google expanded its Live Caption feature across the Chrome browser in March and TikTok launched automatic captions for US English and Japanese last month.
