  3. Give students a way to save live translations from class

    I have students who attend in-person classes. It would be tremendously helpful for me to allow them to save the live translations/transcripts from class directly to their devices for study purposes. As this may not be desired by all faculty, perhaps a checkbox giving us the option to allow the audience to save the transcript would be possible?
