YouTube live streams will soon include automatic captions
02 March, 2018, 07:00 | Author: Simon Thompson
When professionally provided captions aren't available, YouTube's new live automatic captions will fill the void. Streamers can now add automatic live closed captions, and can tag their videos with a location, which in turn lets viewers see other live streams happening in the same area.
The platform has released a chat replay feature, so the chat alongside a stream will be archived alongside the video as it appeared when it was first broadcast.
As you can imagine, adding automated captions to livestreams is a huge undertaking, as it requires real-time speech recognition and rendering to ensure the on-screen words are synchronized with the sounds as neatly as possible.
YouTube has announced several features to make live streams on its platform easier and more accessible. The site introduced auto-captioning for produced videos back in 2009. Obviously there will be some error rates and latency but Google says they're "approaching industry standards". The feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks. Chat reply alongside the video will allow viewers to follow a conversation even after a stream is over.
Last but not the least, creators can now add a location tag to their mobile live stream and video uploads to share their favorite spots with their viewers. Moreover, users can also click on these location tags to see videos that have been shot at that same place (reminds us of Instagram).
First off, Google's finally launching something that it announced nearly a year ago at Google I/O 2017 - IFTTT integration with Super Chat.
Over 600 internet-connected services and devices (like lights, pet feeders and confetti cannons!) can be connected to Super Chat.
