    Let setup recognize which bit version of Office is installed. On 64 bit Windows and 64 bit Office Presentation Translation is installed as 32 bit and of course doesn't start. Of this is to difficult, on its web page give two install options - 32 and 64 bit. I consider it as bug of installer.

  15. Will this work for a church group? Could we use head phones?

    I’m looking for a system where a person could speak into a microphone that sends a signal
    over the airways to a computer with speech recognition software installed that converts English into another language. A person could pick up a headset at the door that receives the converted signal from the computer enabling them to understand, in their own language, the person speaking.

    Add live translator to Teams channels like the PowerPoint version which will display subtitles and break down the barriers for Global Teams, without having to press and hold the microphone button.

  18. Adding translation feature to Onenote

    Hi Presentation Translator Team,
    I'm using Presentation Translator regularly in my lectures as it provides a nice and easy way for hearing impaired students to follow the class. It would be really cool to have the same Feature incorporated in OneNote as well. Secondly, it would be great if one would be able to record the translated text. Is there any way to do so?
