Videos: Subtitles (Video Generator)
Updated over a week ago

When using the Video Generator, subtitles are now automatically generated, making it easier for you to include them. Subtitles provide a huge benefit in terms of accessibility, as they help make your content inclusive. They can also make videos easier to follow and are a good option for those who prefer to watch content muted.

This feature is currently only available for videos created using the Video Generator.
