“Think before you post”, This phrase from our last class made me think a lot about our private and public identity. Am I actually thinking about what I am posting? What are the pros and cons of my post? Will it hurt someone’s sentiments? What are the terms and conditions of the app I am using? So, after thinking about a few questions, I started exploring about TikTok app, which I am using as my major project. India has banned the Tiktok app and I thought of using it (not making much, scrolling more) here in Canada. So, I went through a few updates about this app.
2. TikTok adds an amazing thing- Making videos Accessible to people who are hard of hearing or deaf. This feature that is auto-captions, when enabled will automatically transcribe the speech from a video so viewers can read what’s being said in the video as an alternative to listening. To use auto-captions the creator will select the option on the editing page after they’ve either uploaded or recorded a video. We can also edit the text before the video is published. https://techcrunch.com/2021/04/06/tiktok-adds-auto-captions-to-make-videos-accessible-to-hard-of-hearing-and-deaf/
It’s great to explore such apps! Soon will share a few of my videos too.TikTok has become a leading destination for short-form mobile video. It inspires creativity and brings joy.
