Instagram has brought in AI-powered automatic captions for IGTV that will make it easy for users to access the app. Users will now be able to access captions on IGTV even when they turn the volume down. The feature is designed to help users for better accessibility. The captions on IGTV can be switched on by going to Settings or from an in-video dropdown menu. Captions will be available in 16 languages. The feature can be of help to people having hearing disabilities.

"Audio within Instagram videos is unique in that there are a variety of different languages, topics, acoustic conditions, cultural slang and accents," a Facebook company representative told CNet. "Auto-captioning videos requires cutting-edge research and engineering to power the artificial intelligence that we use in the process."

IGTV was launched in 2018 for video creators posting content over one minute.
