Interprefy, the remote simultaneous interpretation provider, has launched its new AI-driven live captioning technology for multilingual meetings, webinars, and conferences.

The new technology provides automated live translation services for organisations looking to host international events in the language of the delegate’s choosing.

The user experience will be akin to the multi-language captioning options found in video streaming services, such as Netflix, but for live events, like conferences.

Powered by Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) and Machine Translation (MT), the solution transcribes and translates live speech to provide users with closed captions in real-time. Delegates can simply turn captioning on and off in their preferred meeting language and on the platform of their choice, such as Microsoft Teams or ON24.

Interprefy Captions should help people who don’t understand the speaker’s language, the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and individuals joining from noisy offices or public places.

Interprefy CEO Oddmund Braaten, said “Our new captions offering is a huge milestone on our path towards delivering inclusive meetings without language barriers. Complementing our real-time spoken and sign language interpretation offering, event organisers can now select and combine the language solutions that best fit their unique needs. Better yet, it is available to all businesses, no matter the size, platform, or budget.”
