Hear, SEE and interpret
cAPPisco is a fully featured, cloud-based ‘Video-based Interpreting Platform’ (VIP); a interpreter-friendly RSI platform that allows conference interpreters to see their booth partners and other colleagues on the team while interpreting online. It provides interpreters with a professional interpreting environment, a virtual ‘hub’, that replicates the experience of a real interpreting studio with professional interpreting booths.
You enter the lounge on cAPPisco and there you meet your colleagues on the team immediately; you can see everyone there and talk to each other. From there you are led to a virtual booth, where you can see your boothmate and chat with him/her without disturbing the meeting participants.
The lounge is also the place where interpreters can meet each other and have a chat during shared and individual breaks. You can converse with anyone who is present in the lounge, and to all your other colleagues as well.
Just like in a real interpreting booth, in your virtual booth on cAPPisco you can also talk to your colleague without the participants hearing. The sound will remain in the virtual booth if the microphone on your console is not on and will not be broadcast on the participants’ listening app.
It goes without saying that the console in the booth offers all the features that a professional interpreting console is expected to have: a microphone, a mute button, an A channel and a B channel, several relays, etc. All the languages that are configurated in the session are also available as relay channels on the console.
You can choose to listen to your boothmate during your breaks if you wish. You can always enter the lounge from the booth. You can see if your colleague’s microphone is on or not. You can see which colleague is working on what channel. You can chat to your boothmate and other interpreters on the team in the booth.
The interpreting platform can be fully customised with your own logo or with the logo of your end customer or target group.
The listeners listen to the simultaneous interpretation through a user-friendly listening app on their smartphone or tablet. This fully customisable listening app can also be opened on a PC or laptop via a listening URL, a desktop listening app for windows, a browser extension or directly in MS Teams via the integrated cAPPisco listening app.
