Controlling the Audio Destination

Use the Courtroom and Client controls to determine where the simultaneous interpretation audio will be sent.

  • Click the Courtroom control to send your audio into the courtroom and to all participants in the conference. Both the courtroom and all of the conference participants will hear your audio. In this mode, the Courtroom control will appear in pink.
  • Broadcast to Courtroom

  • Click the Clients control to only send your audio to those participants who have chosen to listen to the simultaneous interpretation. In this mode, the Clients control will appear in green.
  • Speak Simultaneous Interpretation


    Non-Interpreter Participants

    For conference participants who are not interpreters, they will see two new controls on their application interface, as circled in the screen capture below. Participants who do not want to listen to the simultaneous interpretation should ignore these additional controls. Participants who want to listen to the simultaneous interpretation must check the Listen to Interpretation checkbox and then control the balance of the audio using the Balance control. Moving the Balance control to the right will cause more and more audio from the interpreter to be heard, while less and less of the courtroom audio will be heard. Moving the balance to the left will cause more and more of the courtroom audio to be heard, while less and less of the interpreter audio will be heard.
