Every time I’m at an event in which makes use of simultaneous translation is comes to mind the same idea:
¿ No one would use the power of the network to provide a solution much more economical and adaptable to the need for a simultaneous ?
My idea is quite simple and is not a great display of originality: it is to use a streaming audio to send the speaker’s voice to the translator and it also delivers the translation via streaming to all stakeholders .
So in my imagination is the simultaneous translator either in their own home or in a remote area of the audience listening and retransmitted its translation into any interested party who is in the room (or not, this is a plus) who through their Portable and some domestic helmets are listening to the talk in their chosen language.
This system, of course, allows multiple simultaneous translations in various languages. One might also think about the translator who did the translation in text mode … of course that depends on the qualities of typists translator.
Economic because the issue of the cab of translators, the headphones multiband, the displacement of the translator in-situ, it would no longer be necessary.
Adaptable because it may offer the service of simultaneous translation in any venue but the talk has not shed all over the radio and headphones mounted.
I also like the idea of being able to use this system in the not-too-enterprise events, family events and ‘good roll’), because in these cases the translator could be any volunteer that you feel like trying.
In principle I see only 2 limitations:
1) The bandwidth needed for streaming, although I believe that today’s technology will not see much difficulty in overcoming this obstacle.
2) The need for a laptop or wireless device or 3g for the reception of streaming, and I’m always at technical conferences this will not be a problem:)
I do not see a very outlandish, even I think that has a strong commercial potential. Looking at google did not find anything like this. Although I’m not sure that doing the search.
Al furyl more style: What do you think? Is it feasible? What things like that exist?
