YouTube's new caption tool describes sound effects

YouTube will soon start describing sound effects in videos through machine learning. It has developed a sound effect captioning system for its video platform.

The sound effect is automatic and will identify and label sounds in the video without manual input.

With machine learning, YouTube will be able to automatically detect the presence of sound effects in a video. It will start showing sound effects like [APPLAUSE], [MUSIC], and [LAUGHTER].

The new changes will help 360 million people around the world who have problems in hearing. The company has so far made several changes to cater to these users. It says the number of videos with automatic captions is now more than one billion.
