Microsoft has announced the launch of a new beta feature that offers live captioning of Skype for Business meeting broadcasts in 40 languages, later this year. Office 365 customers will be getting a preview of automatic transcription and translation in Skype Meeting Broadcast by the end of 2016.
Speakers will be able to talk in one of a handful of supported native languages by means of Bing Translator technology. In addition to this, the viewers will be able to view computer-generated text translations of the audio in their preferred supported languages.
The addition of this cool feature to Skype Meeting Broadcast will help bridge the language barrier between the presenter and attendees/viewers. Currently, the attendees can only hear the presentation in the language of the speaker – with the addition of this new feature, it is going to make massive changes to the way online presentations work globally.
The introduction of this new technology is intended to act as a boost to Skype for Business tool, which is aiming to become the preferred option in many organisations and online enabled companies. The new translation feature will work in favour of hearing-impaired users, who can benefit from live captions from feeds that are sent over Skype Meeting Broadcast.
Skype Meeting Broadcast is designed to produce, host, and broadcast meetings to large online audiences of up to 10,000.
