Interprefy Captions supports live captioning in 31 languages to facilitate better understanding in multilingual conferences and events
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, September 29, 2021 – Interprefy, the leading provider of managed remote simultaneous interpretation technology and services, has today announced its new live captioning abilities for multilingual meetings and conferences supporting participants with hearing impairment as well as those who prefer to follow the content with visual reinforcement.
Interprefy Captions mark another milestone in the company’s mission to make the global meetings and events space more inclusive and accessible. Complementing Interprefy’s sign language offering, Interprefy Captions are available in 31 languages, including the world’s most spoken and beyond.
Interprefy captions have been designed as a visual aid for users to follow speech through translated subtitles – with real-time interpretation from professional conference interpreters transcribed into live captions using AI-powered Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) technology.
The tool also includes a powerful glossary function that allows Interprefy clients to pre-load the system with context-specific terms, acronyms and names that will be used during the event to enhance captions accuracy even further.
Speaking on the launch, Interprefy CEO, Annet Polaszewski-Plath, said, “The addition of Interprefy Captions is another big step in our mission to break down barriers and make global communication more accessible. The progress of real-time captioning technology is important to support inclusivity and accessibility – not just in large events, but for any business meeting, conference or video stream.”
“No matter the impairment or language, everyone should be able to access the content equally. We’re continuing to innovate our technology and services so that everyone, regardless of their language capabilities, can feel included and join in on the conversation,” Polaszewski-Plath concludes.
Interprefy Captions is available today to select clients in 31 languages, with more to be added in the future.
