Increase the impact of your message.
Reach your audience like never before by communicating your talk in their language. You don’t have to prepare extensively to provide a great multilingual experience. Any prepared materials can be loaded into spf.io before the event. Connect your microphone to spf.io and deliver captions and translations as you speak. Attendees get translation by viewing the projector screen or visit the event URL on their own mobile devices. It’s that simple.
Ready for Anything
With spf.io, you can provide translation to your audience whether or not it’s prepared beforehand. Automated translation for over 50 languages is always at your fingertips.
Translation and slides can both be displayed through spf.io. Show them on a projector or directly on the audience’s mobile devices.
Keep multiple languages all in sync with what the speaker says. Control the delivery of captions and slides with the tap of a button from a single device.
