It’s been interesting to see a marked rise in requests for providing silent seminar services over recent months.
A silent seminar, conference or workshop, is an event where attendees use wireless headphones to listen to the speaker or presenter. This allows for multiple presentations or discussions to take place simultaneously in the same physical space without causing audio interference. Each participant can choose the audio channel they want to listen to by selecting the corresponding channel on their headphones.
Silent seminars are becoming particularly popular in scenarios where space constraints or noise considerations make it challenging to conduct traditional presentations.
Interpreters can play a crucial role in making silent seminars accessible and inclusive for participants who speak different languages. Just like speakers or presenters, interpreters can have their own dedicated channels on the wireless headphone system and participants who need interpretation can switch to the appropriate channel to hear the content in their preferred language. Interpreters can also provide simultaneous interpretation in this manner.
