Original audio for interpreters (Floor channel)
In order to provide the original audio to the interpreter, this is how you can set it up easily with LiveVoice:
1. Setup Original Audio
First of all, you simply create a new channel in your event and call it for example "Original Audio" or "Floor". Then you follow these steps:
a. Connect audio: Connect audio mixing console to a laptop or PC (audio cable or USB depending on your equipment).
b. Start LiveVoice: Start LiveVoice on the computer browser (open www.livevoice.io and enter the speaker code of the floor channel)
c. Start Streaming: Click "Start" in the LiveVoice Lobby. The interface will turn orange and you will see the mic symbol working
2. Using it as interpreter
The interpreter will now see the play button of the original audio channel on the bottom of his interface turn orange.
He can now click play and listen to the original audio (floor channel) while speaking.
☝️ADVICE: If you do not want to show the floor channel to the audience, but only to the interpreter, you can hide this channel from all listeners. >> Here is how this work.
Some more technical advice:
For most PCs that have separated audio in- and out-puts, you can simply plug in a standard 3 pole plug (3,5mm - looking like the ones you know from standard headphones). You can recognize this because of its two rings.
Note, that most modern laptops use a combined in/out audio jack. These only work with 4 pole plugs! So if you use a 3 pole plug, the computer won't recognize it as a microphone input. But there is an easy solution to it: Simply get an external USB sound card that offers separate in- and outputs. You can get them for under 10 Dollars, like this one here on Amazon.
