Making Unicorns.LIVE More Accessible: Introducing Subtitles

At Unicorns.LIVE, we're thrilled to announce a significant step towards making our platform more inclusive and accessible: the introduction of subtitles across our on-demand shows. This initiative reflects our longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusivity, ensuring that everyone, regardless of hearing ability, can enjoy our unique content.

 

Beta Launch with "The Stupid Shit Podcast"

Our journey begins with the beta launch of subtitles on "The Stupid Shit Podcast with Ella & Dustyn". This marks a significant milestone as we embark on a journey to make our platform more accessible to all. The response from our audience has been overwhelmingly positive, and we're excited to see how this feature enhances the viewing experience.

 

Expanding to "Denta" and "Queerprenuers"

Looking ahead, we are eager to incorporate subtitles into our upcoming show "Denta," set to release in February, and future episodes of "Queerprenuers." This expansion is a testament to our dedication to inclusivity, ensuring that our diverse range of programming is accessible to a wider audience.

 

A Gradual Rollout to Past Shows

Over the next few months, we will be working diligently to add subtitles to our previous shows. We understand the importance of making our entire library accessible, and while this is a significant undertaking, it is a challenge we embrace wholeheartedly.

 

Leveraging AI for Subtitle Creation

To make this possible, we are leveraging advanced AI technology for subtitle creation. This approach allows us to efficiently produce subtitles, though we acknowledge that this might lead to some initial errors. Our team is dedicated to reviewing and improving these subtitles, but we believe it's more important to make them available as soon as possible, rather than waiting for perfection.

 

Navigating Subtitles on Unicorns.LIVE

To use subtitles on Unicorns.LIVE, viewers can simply click on the subtitle icon in the video player. We've ensured that this feature is intuitive and user-friendly, making it easy for everyone to enable or disable subtitles as needed. (support articles coming soon)

 

Your Support Matters

Introducing subtitles is a resource-intensive endeavour, both in time and technology. We are committed to this path, but your support can make a significant difference. If you'd like to support our efforts, please consider joining Unicorns.LIVE as a member.

 

Embracing Imperfection in the Pursuit of Accessibility

While we strive for accuracy, we acknowledge that our initial subtitle releases might not be perfect. However, we believe that providing subtitles, even with some imperfections, is a crucial step towards making our content more accessible. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work towards improving this feature.

 

Looking to the Future

As Unicorns.LIVE continues to grow, we remain committed to enhancing accessibility across our platform. This initiative with subtitles is just the beginning. We are excited about the possibilities this opens up and look forward to continuing our journey towards a more inclusive and accessible Unicorns.LIVE.

We're excited about this new chapter at Unicorns.LIVE and we can't wait for you to experience our content in a more accessible way. Stay tuned for more updates as we expand our subtitle offerings and continue to make our platform a place where everyone can enjoy the magic of Unicorns.LIVE.
