  7. let setup recognize which bit version of Office is installed

    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.

  9. 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?

  12. multiple screens

    Presentation translator is great if you are displaying using mirrored screens, however it does not display when using presenter view and dual screens. Many presenters use presenter view, and it would be useful to still be able to use presenter view and translator at the same time

  13. Why does it only work when PowerPoint is in full screen? I want to be able to minimize PPT and continue running subtitles!

    Why does it only work when PowerPoint is in full screen? I want to be able to minimize PPT and continue running subtitles when I'm using other programs in my classroom. I rarely use PointPoint, but it's not user-friendly in a mathematics classroom.
