Creating an Event
If you need to edit the event details prior to its start, you can click on “Edit” button on the VoiceBoxer portal.
- Go to the ‘Slides’ section
- Choose the language for your slides
- Click “Add Slides”
- Click on the + icon and choose the slides from your computer (make sure to convert the PPT slides to images first)
- Move or delete individual slides if needed with buttons on each slide
Note: To add slides in more than one language, a language booth with respective languages needs to be added beforehand. Contact us for any assistance for making your events multilingual.
See a video tutorial:
On a free plan you can create as many monolingual events as you wish.
If you want to host a multilingual event on VoiceBoxer, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
When you upload multilingual slides to an event, you will have to choose a Primary language. The Primary language is the fall back language in case no slides are uploaded for all languages.
Here’s an example. An event will be broadcasted in 3 languages: English, Spanish and French. If you upload slides only in English and Spanish and a participant listens to the event in French, the Primary language selection triggers which slides will be displayed.

No. There could be only person moderating a session as they are responsible for starting/stopping the event and passing the floor to Presenters in order.
No. The audience can interact with the presenters and other audience members by using the chat.
The Presenters who have been added during the event creation can take the floor and be heard/seen via their microphone/camera. To learn about the roles on VoiceBoxer click here.
Click the “+” icon, then “Screen Share”, the other participants will be seeing your screen instead of the webcam feed.
Once you have clicked “Screen Share” the browser will ask you to confirm what exactly you would like to share:
(example from Chrome)
Please make sure to choose an appropriate screen and click “Share”. If you wish to stop screen sharing, please click again on the “+”icon and choose either “Camera” for webcam feed or “Off” for audio-only option.
Depending on your role during an event on VoiceBoxer, you have different possibilities regarding the choice of browser.
Audience members also have the option of using our downloadable mobile apps for an audio-only connection, in case of limited internet or device battery life.
Microsoft Edge and Safari (from version 12.1) are also among the supported browsers with some limitations. In Edge, Presenters and Moderators need to manually allow their camera from the “+” icon and Safari is fully supported for Moderators, Presenters and Interpreters but not for Audiences.
This depends on the way that VoiceBoxer is configured by the organizer and which of the roles you are assigned to.
For example, VoiceBoxer Podium single-video only has one active speaker who can be seen/heard at a time. In this way, interpreters will only receive one audio feed and will be able to perform at the best of their abilities!
Only when the moderator gives you the floor, you will be heard and seen by the people participating in the event.
It is not possible to delete the recording on your own, but in case you are the event organizer, you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will help you with that.
The recording is available the next day after the event has ended. Longer events may take additional time to be processed. Please note that the recording feature should be activated in advance.
In case you would to activate the recording feature for any official event, please contact the VoiceBoxer staff via email@example.com.
