Instagram Has Made Automatic Captioning for IG Stories

How To Grow Followers On Instagram Without Posting

Instagram’s currently testing out a new ‘Closed Captions’ sticker for IG Stories, which generates automated captions for your Stories clips in a range of text formats.

As you can see in this example clip, in its current form, once you add the Captions sticker to your video clip, you would then see a ‘Transcribing audio…’ prompt on your screen. You’d then be able to view the text from your video, which displays in time with your speech.

Instagram appears to be testing four text style options, including typewriter-esque block text, larger words for added emphasis and basic block letters.

As noted, the tool could provide a range of new options for brands and creators, making it easier to reach a wider audience, and ensure that your Stories are able to be understood in sound on and sound off scenarios. As you can see in the example, however, the automated captions are not perfect, so you will need to review the text. It’s not clear yet whether Instagram will provide the capacity to edit the text within the interface.

All you need to do to access captions is;  

1. Tap on the sticker icon
2. Search and type “captions”
3. Select the captions sticker.

The caption sticker may not be available to everyone yet.
