What is a Subtitle API?
At its core, subtitle APIs offer reasonable and affordable access to pre-generated subtitles for various video media types. To access these subtitles, developers use an application programming interface. This interface provides access to audio translation services and functionalities that automatically listen and translate spoken words to dozens of languages.
Who is the Target Audience for Subtitle APIs?
The specific target audience for one of the many subtitle API alternatives available varies based on the type of media the developer includes on their platform. The APIs exist to allow developers to provide translated subtitles, alongside subtitles in the content’s native language, to end-users.
Ultimately, the use of subtitles directly benefits these end-users. Developers creating platforms in hopes of reaching audiences across the globe find that using these APIs on their media increases viewership and overall video engagement. Additionally, it provides greater accessibility to the hard-of-hearing community and those who are not comfortable with the native language of the content.
