A Review of Remote Interpreting Platforms

Remote Interpreting is a hot topic in the interpreting community nowadays. Our presenter Maha El-Metwally has been testing remote interpreting platforms for a while now and recently had the opportunity to augment this experience through direct contact with the providers of six platforms. In this webinar, Maha will list the features, pros and cons of each of these platforms to help interpreters better understand what is involved when working through these platforms.

Who should watch it?
