Users can also easily switch fonts for captions while creating a story. Matt Navarra, a social media consultant, shared a video on Twitter. He tested the feature. The 30-second video reveals how the upcoming Instagram Stories sticker works. However, this feature, for now, is with a small group of people only.
“We’re always exploring ways for people to better express themselves in Stories. This feature is not currently publicly testing”
Must be a glitch that some people have it. Shows up as “internal only” when you use the feature in a story. Fails to publish— Matt Navarra (@MattNavarra) March 9, 2021
To use the Captions sticker on Instagram Stories, you'll first need to add the Captions sticker to your video clip. Once you do that, the app will display a 'transcribing audio' prompt on the display for a few seconds. After that, you'll be able to view the text from the video clip as it plays. You can choose from four different font options for these captions.Instagram's Captions sticker should add to the accessibility factor, making it easier for those who have hearing problems to consume video clips. The Captions sticker will also enable a range of new content formats for creators on Instagram.
