Social Media Today reports that Instagram is adding automatic captions for new IGTV uploads.

Users can toggle to enable auto-generated captions in the caption settings. Of course the generated text will depend on the clarity of the audio. Facebook also explains:

"While there is no shortage of information, not everyone can access it. It needs to be available to the hundreds of millions of people in the world who are deaf or hard of hearing. According to the World Health Organization, over 5% of the world's population - or 466 million people - have disabling hearing loss, and that is projected to increase to over 900 million by 2050."
It's notable that Facebook has already been offering automatic captions on video uploads on the main Facebook platform since 2017. The accuracy of their captioning system is also improving.

Chime in.

    That is also good for videos that are hard if not impossible to understand such as English with an accent and foreign languages.
