For businesses to carry on with their work during the pandemic smoothly Video conferencing has become a very vital part. And with this relevance, Cisco has made it easier to chat with people all around the world, even if there’s any language barrier.
Cisco has just rolled out a new preview feature for Webex meetings which supports real-time translation of speech into text. In simple terms, someone who doesn’t understand what the speaker is saying will get access to subtitles presented in real-time in their choice of language. The company has implemented support for 108 languages until now, so it will be very rare that their language won’t be available.
Jeetu Patel, SVP and GM security and Applications, Cisco, “The inclusive features of Webex help create a level playing field for users regardless of factors like language or geography. Enabling global Real-Time Translations is another step toward powering an Inclusive Future, and an important component of driving better communication and collaboration across teams.” “AI technologies play an integral role in delivering the seamless collaboration, smart hybrid work and intelligent customer experiences that Cisco is known to deliver.“
The company is expecting the test of the real-time translation feature thoroughly for the next few months before making it available for Webex users somewhere in May.
