In this past year, the daily viewing time for broadcasts through Facebook Live has grown more than four times, with one in five Facebook videos being a live stream. Hence, Facebook just introduced an awesome new feature for its users.
The social media giant Facebook is a social network that does not stop, nor does it stop stagnating. Hence, it constantly presenting and making news to users, it’s no wonder it’s the biggest and best social network in the world.
Thus, and to think about the accessibility of all shared content, Facebook Live will be now displayed with subtitles. Accessibility to services and content, particularly those that are online, should be a priority aspect of the platforms.
To think about it, Facebook allows, from now on, the inclusion of subtitles in Facebook Live videos, thus making it easier for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to experience and enjoy live videos.
To make this happen, simply you just have to go to the caption settings simply to turn on the feature, then you automatically have captions on the live streams where they are made available.
Now it’s also possible to add captions to videos that are not streamed live, by uploading to Facebook Pages and using the voice recognition service to automatically generate subtitles for videos on Pages.
In this past year, the daily viewing time for broadcasts through Facebook Live has grown more than four times, with one in five Facebook videos being a live stream.
Now, by allowing publishers to include captions in live broadcasts, it’s hoped that more people will be able to also become part of what’s happening live by accessing that content in a tailored way.
