ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, March 9, 2022 - Interprefy, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for multi-lingual online and hybrid conferencing, has integrated its platform with Microsoft Teams. The remote interpreting technology and services company has been invited by Microsoft to collaborate in making live language interpretation accessible during Teams meetings.
Good sound quality is key for the success of any online meeting or event, even more so in the case of interpreted ones.
Several reports, including The State of Remote Simultaneous Interpretation in 2020-21, the Survey of Interpreters Experience with Virtual Sittings working for the Canadian Parliament, the report for Conference Interpreting after Covid-19, and the ESIT Research Project on Remote Simultaneous Interpreting highlight the impact of speaker sound quality for interpreters.
ESIT's research even points out that a staggering 93% of interpreters have had to deal with speakers using inadequate equipment at some point in their careers.
That is why we are on a mission to educate and improve speakers' sound quality and have launched a housekeeping video campaign to help speakers sound their best at interpreted meetings and avoid impacting negatively on the interpreters' performance.
When joining a session online, we rarely know how we actually sound to other participants and to interpreters who are translating our speech in real-time. This can pose quite the challenge to those trying to follow the dialogue.
That's why, earlier this year, we have introduced the pre-call testing functionality for Connect and Connect Pro meetings, allowing meeting participants and interpreters to get a full overview of their computer settings and internet speed ahead of a meeting.
Making sure you know you sound great
Today, we have updated this functionality to give participants the opportunity to record and listen to a short sample of their audio. To make sure you know exactly how you look and sound to other participants in the session - ahead of joining.
In any session
The pre-call testing functionality is available via the pre-call testing page that can be accessed through this direct link:
Not only is this a useful resource when joining a session on Interprefy Connect or Connect Pro, but literally any session - whether you're hosting a webinar or joining a Zoom call.

Update August 16, 2021 - The pre-call testing functionality has been upgraded to allow you to record and listen to a sample of your voice - available for any session. Learn more
While connecting remotely via web conferencing software has become an established component of daily work for most people, getting your computer settings and equipment in place before joining an online meeting can still be in the way of successfully connecting.
