TechnologyClubhouse finally supports 13 languages ​​such as subtitle function...

Clubhouse announced on November 17th that it has started offering subtitles for iOS. This essential accessibility feature has long been overlooked in Clubhouse apps. The lack of this live caption, which was already commonplace in competing products like Twitter Spaces, made Clubhouse unusable for the hearing impaired. And now Clubhouse can reach more people.

“Currently, captions are available in 13 languages ​​and will be added in the future. The 13 languages ​​are English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Italian (one of the Chinese dialects), French, German, and Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Arabic, Russian and Turkish, “a Clubhouse representative told TechCrunch.

One user said that Spanish live captions were working in one room, but in another room the Spanish speech was rewritten in random English.Reported on Twitter.. Clubhouse engineers suspect this is due to poor language detection.Reply.. So the app is in beta and seems to be still learning how to distinguish between languages ​​other than English.

Clubhouse has recently rolled out a number of features, including Wave, which makes it easy to start conversations with friends, replays for asynchronous listening, and room recording. Room recording is a feature to counter startups like Callin and Space Pod, which allow creators to make live-recorded audio into a widely available podcast. However, live captioning has been lacking since Clubhouse became popular. Clubhouse hasn’t indicated when closed captioning will be available for Android, but hopefully it won’t be long.
