YouTube Launches New Audio Description Options & Preferred Pronouns

YouTube has announced that they are bringing multilingual audio to the audio description feature. Audio description is a feature that is helpful for visually impaired people to understand what’s going on with the video. In between the pauses of the video, strategically, these descriptions will appear. Now you can add multilingual audio descriptions for your video. I think it’s a useful feature. This could also help you improve your discoverability, your searchability, and also makes it user-friendly for a wider audience. YouTube also announced that creators in the US will be able to add their preferred pronouns to their creator homepage. If you are in the US, in the coming days, you will see an option to add a pronoun to your channel homepage.
