The users of the popular social network, TikTok, can no longer wait for their favorite content author to include subtitles in his own channel. The company has started to automatically convert speech into text until only in a few languages.
The function of showing automatically created subtitles can be included in any video. This can help if the user has hearing problems or is in a noisy environment.
A particularly useful function may be for those who know a foreign language well, but do not always properly hear it -- although the robot sometimes makes mistakes when producing subtitles, the overall meaning of the speech is quite reliable. Moreover, the social network provided for an automatic translation of subtitles and text stickers. If it is not clear what is happening, video descriptions are available.
It is worth noting that in a similar YouTube Shorts service, support for Russian subtitles is already available, as is the possibility of auto-translating rollers, at least from Russian to English and from English to many other languages, including Russian.
