            • Translate Entire PPT Presentation

              Is the Microsoft Translator able to translate all slides at once and keep the formatting of the slides? If not, can this be on the roadmap for enhancement?

                      • Türkçe dilinde mikrofon desteği yok

                        Mükemmel bir program. Ancak türkçe olarak mikrofonu desteklemiyor. Bu bir sorun mu? Yoksa bizim tarafta eksik birşey mi var?

                            • Fix Japanese to English Translation

                              I have been using English to Japanese and Japanese to English subtitles during presentations and the translation is very poor with not even 10% accuracy of what is being spoken.

                              Especially from Japanese to English translation, you see a lot of profane words and unrelated content which is not even remotely connected to what is being spoken about.

                              This needs fixing ASAP. Same for Traditional Chinese.

                                      • Can a person connect from another state?

                                        If a group of three people are in one room, but another individual is Skyping in via latop, can that remote person connect to the same conversation if provided the "code" using MS Translator?

                                        • Subtitles Cover Slide Content

                                          Is there a way to move where the subtitles are shown from the top of the slides to the bottom?
