Twitter announced that it’s working on a button that can turn captions on and off for Apple iPhone users. This feature is coming to Android users too, according to the company. The announcement was made through a tweet from its official account.
A new ‘CC’ button will show up at the top right corner of the video if the feature is rolled out, according to a video posted by the platform. Notably, the button will only appear over videos with captions enabled.
A new accessibility feature that Twitter rolled out in the last month will help users better understand images. A new feature is available at the bottom right corner of the screen. Users can tap it to see a description of the image. It enables people with low vision, cognitive disabilities, assistive technology, low-bandwidth areas, or blindness to contribute to Twitter.
Another new feature that is under development will allow users to edit their tweets after they’ve published them. Twitter Blue users will be the first to test this new feature. In the beginning, many took the company’s announcement as a joke since it was posted on April Fools’ Day. Later, the company revealed more details about the feature.
