Youtube transcription

iOS & iPadOS

I just discovered a feature in the Youtube app or if it is IOs 11. It actually transcribes the video somehow because I was watching my video blog I had made and me and my friend saw this. Is there an easy way to actually read thiz better?

I have looked closer at this and I realize that this feature is in Youtube. I still haven’t found a reliable way to read the text, however, so I doubt this feature is accessible.

If we are talking about same thing, jaws reads them perfectly but Voice over doesn't. Jaws reads them automaticly if yoo do the subtitle settings on Youtube. I hope voice over reads automaticly too

Nope I mean on iOs. I don’t own a mac or windows so I won’t need Jaws because first I cannot have it and second, I am never ever going to get a computer because I already have an iPad wich I am satisfied with. The text reads with Voiceover, if I just can find it, but this isn’t very often, unfortunately, wich means that this feature is completely inaccessible for VoiceOver users on iOs. I haven’t tried this on a computer but I guess you are right about this. But I am not going to have a chance to try. I am only running iOs.

Hi there,

I'm not sure which one you're talking about. Do you mean the YouTube app itself, or the YouTube using Safari? If you're talking about the YouTube using the web browser, Yes, YouTube does implemented this feature awhile ago. However, I haven't found the transcription feature in the Youtube app yet.

To the person who said that the YouTube transcription works with JAWS on the PC, VoiceOver on the Mac does the same thing. But I won't talking much about Windows or Mac, since we're on the iPhone thread, anyway.
