YouTube, the company which is owned by Google, has recently made an announcement regarding its plans to do the introduction of an AI-powered dubbing tool. This tool is going to facilitate creators in dubbing their videos into various languages. In the event of VidCon, the announcement was made. This was an annual convention for fans, creators, executives, and online brands. YouTube is expected to incorporate the team behind Google’s Area 120 incubator’s AI-driven dubbing service called ‘Aloud’.
Aloud’s website also mentioned that the tool transcribes the video, which is helpful in providing creators with a transcription that they can review and edit further. Subsequently, the tool translates the content and is helpful in the overall generation of the dub in the desired language. YouTube is currently conducting the testing program along with “hundreds” of creators. The information is transmitted by Amjad Hanif, Vice President of Creator Products at YouTube. He also mentioned that Aloud is currently supporting a selected number of languages and has the plan to expand the language options in the future.
As per Jessica Gibby, the AI-powered dubbing service is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese languages at present. YouTube is also actively working to make improvements in the translated audio tracks to make them sound more like the creator’s original voice. This feature completes with enhanced expression and lip sync.
The introduction of multi-language audio tracks, which will enable creators to dub their new and existing videos in multiple languages, is done by Youtube. The addition of the AI-powered dubbing tool will enhance this capability and will also be making the dubbing process more streamlined and accessible for the creators.
The integration of AI technology into the dubbing process is set to revolutionize content localization on YouTube. AI technology is going to empower creators to reach a broader global audience by easily translating their videos into different languages. This is also going to break down language barriers and facilitate cross-cultural communication.
After the continuous efforts that are made by YouTube are going to improvise and make the expansion on the platform features. The creators are also allowed to anticipate more efficient and immersive experiences in sharing their content with diverse audiences around the world.
