Creating an Event
- 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
- 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.
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.
If you need to edit the event details prior to its start, you can click on “Edit” button on the VoiceBoxer portal.
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.

Depending on your role during an event on VoiceBoxer (i.e. moderator, presenter, interpreter, audience) you have different possibilities regarding the choice of browser.
Firefox can be used until version 68.0, unfortunately, the latter versions are known to have a bug causing problems receiving audio/video properly and thus affects VoiceBoxer and other similar communication tools.
Microsoft Edge and Safari (from version 12.1) are also among the supported browsers with some limitations. As shown below: video streaming is not available when using Edge, only audio and Safari is fully supported for Moderators and Presenters; Interpreters have only audio and there is no Audience support for now.
No, the way VoiceBoxer is configured is that only one active speaker speaks at a time. This way, interpreters will only receive one audio feed at a time 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. To learn more about the roles visit this page.
The recording is available approximately half an hour after the event has ended. Longer events may take additional time to be processed.
All sessions on VoiceBoxer are automatically recorded.
