The browser-based version of VoiceBoxer Connect enables you to continue using your regular communication tool (think Zoom, MS Teams etc.) and adds professional simultaneous interpretation in as many languages as needed.

There are three ways to use VB Connect directly through your browser:

  1. Connect to the meeting platform and VB Connect in the same browser
  2. Connect to the meeting platform via the desktop application and VB Connect via mobile phone
  3. Connect to the meeting platform via its desktop application and VB Connect via browser

NB! Please make sure to use a headset for listening in all cases to avoid double audio or echo.

1. Connect to the meeting platform and VB Connect in the same browser

1. Open the meeting link in a browser (we recommend Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and choose the option to join the meeting in the browser. See below examples for Zoom and MS Teams:

3.  To participate in the meeting in your chosen language, choose the language from the VB Connect page. You can mute the interpretation by clicking on the mute button to the left and if you have any issues, please reach out to our support team via the question mark in the middle of the black bar or you can refresh your connection by clicking on the refresh icon to the right.
