YouTube is testing an AI-powered dub tool to translate creators’ videos

From Mashable:

YouTube is working on a potential new way to help creators reach a larger audience: AI-powered multi-language voiceover dubbing for their video content.

The tool is powered by Aloud, an AI dubbing company that is part of Google’s own Area 120 startup incubator.

Aloud first provides the creator with a transcription of their video. The user can then edit the transcribed text as they see fit. After the creator signs off on the transcription, Aloud creates(opens in a new tab) an AI voiceover dub for the video. Aloud currently provides this service for free on its website, which is separate from the tool YouTube is building into its platform, but there’s currently a waitlist.

A YouTube spokesperson told The Verge that the company has already been testing out the AI dubbing tool with “hundreds” of creators.
