When professionally provided captions aren't available, our new live automatic captions provide creators a quick and affordable way to make live streams accessible to more people.

As more and more people get into live streaming their events, promotions, or even just their thoughts and stuff, we know that the brands will continue to add more features to engage both the content creators and the audience that consume these live videos. This gives viewers the chance to experience the live stream exactly as it originally appeared. Yes, this feature has been around since 2009, but now onwards, the live videos will too generate captions automatically in English language.

First, Google is improving its automatic captioning service, with a live automatic speech recognition which parses streamers and automatically provides captions for their speech in lieu of professional captions.

Russian Federation vetoes UK-drafted resolution targeting Iran
The United Nations says that some three thirds of the Yemeni population or 22.2 mln people are in need of assistance. The vote was 11 in favor, Russian Federation and Bolivia opposed, and China and Kazakhstan abstaining.

For live broadcasts in English, YouTube is launching automatic captions, where the company's AI will analyze the speech to produce captions in real time. As the name suggests, users can now add location tag to live streams and video uploads from their mobile. The feature will roll out in the coming weeks. While captions likely won't be ideal, they'll help the hearing impaired enjoy live events. There's also going to be a function where users can filter search results by location to find videos that have been tagged from a particular region. Already available on desktop and Android devices, YouTube says it is rolling out support for Super Chat on iOS devices today.

"Over 600 internet-connected services and devices (like lights, pet feeders and confetti cannons!) can be connected to Super Chat", writes Wilms.
