    • 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 with subtitles and really break down barriers!

                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.

                • Part of translation text is masked by *** in Conversation function

                  I feel very convinient about Conversation function in Microsoft Translator Apps.
                  But sometimes I have problems when using conversation feature.
                  Part of translation text is masked by *** in Conversation feature when translate Japanese to Vietnamese.

                  For example, Conversation master posted 肉(It means "meat" in Japanese language) in Microsoft Translator(Windows Store App).
                  It become display "***" in participant devices.

                  It seems 肉 is NG Word in Conversation feature.
                  Other some word become same problems.
