One of the UK’s leading suppliers of wireless headset technology for events, Silent Seminars (Silent Noize Events), has added a new feature to its mobile audio app. The app which was originally designed to allow audiences to listen to live audio at events using their own headsets now offers an additional translation and interpretation function.
The mobile app, launched at the end of 2020, predominantly with live events in mind, allows organisers to offer a BYOH (bring your own headsets) service so delegates can access content from the event floor in a comfortable and Covid-safe way using their own headsets.
However, off the back of the launch, several clients asked Silent Seminars if the app could be used for language translation solutions to work across virtual and hybrid events. Silent Seminars worked with its developers to add this feature which is now available on the mobile app, as well as via a desktop platform which can be integrated with any virtual event platform.
The rapid increase in the number of virtual events caused by Covid-19 has led to a growth in global audiences and the app has been instrumental in resolving challenges around language barriers by offering this translation service in real-time.
Since the end of 2020, the app has been used at a number of online webinars to allow audiences to listen to the audio content in their preferred languages, with great success.
