Facebook is introducing a lot of new features lately. Instagram has introduced a new sticker that will automatically transcribe speech in your story videos. Back in August 2020, Instagram introduced Reels which is a TikTok-like feature in the application. Instagram Reels allows users to share fun and engaging video content of 15 seconds. However, the Auto-Caption sticker is not available on Instagram Reels right now.
The sticker is only available in “English and English-speaking countries”. However, Instagram will roll this feature out in other countries soon. Instagram Tweeted:
Sound off…with sound off.
Now you can add a captions sticker in Stories (coming soon to Reels) that automatically turns what you say into text. We’re starting in a handful of countries and hope to expand soon.
How To Post Auto-Caption Stories
Just like any other story on Instagram, you can publish auto-caption stories in the same way.
- Click on your display picture.
- Create a video that has a voice-over in English.
- Click on the sticker category.
- Choose the Auto-Caption Sticker.
- Adjust the style, color, spelling, etc.
- Publish the story on your Instagram.
Since, everyone has a different accent, the automatically transcribed speech can be customized/edited. You can check for spelling, punctuation mistakes after creating the video.
