YouTube to remove community contributions for closed captions and subtitles


Team Udayavani, Aug 1, 2020, 6:14 PM IST

Youtube plans to discontinue its community captions feature, which allowed viewers to add subtitles to videos in September

Youtube states that the feature is rarely used and people continue to report spam and abuse. The feature lets anyone contribute translated video titles, descriptions, closed captions and subtitles.

The company also states that less than 0.001% of channels have published community captions in the last month. However, Contributions that have already published will continue to show up on videos

But, deaf creators say removing the community captions feature will stifle accessibility and urge the company to come up with a  solution
