"This is it. The most complete guide to audio and video for interpreters you can buy. Since remote interpreting in all its guises is here to stay, this book should be a permanent fixture on your phone or your desk."
"Josh and Naomi have taken the time to compile an excellent primer and to test and suggest different kinds of equipment, knowing that people have different needs and demands. Wish I'd known this much before I bought as many not-exactly-cheap-yet-not-quite-satisfactory headsets as I did during lockdown!"
"This manual is a goldmine – all the information that most of us have spent a year piecing together in one convenient place. Without a doubt, Naomi and Josh are two of the world’s experts on technology for interpreters, and it shows. They’ve done all the research and the legwork so you don’t have to.
Want to know which microphone is a good fit for you? It’s in there? Wondering what krisp.ai is? They’ve got you covered. Same for the brilliant elevator pitch to clients on how to get great sound from them, on why sometimes a hamper full of dirty laundry is a good thing, and on why you need a backup communication channel with both your interpreting partner and your client.
Even though I’d done a deep dive into interpreting technology myself in the last 12 months, I learned a lot and can’t recommend this manual enough. It should be required reading for every interpreter who wants to work online – and it’s a fun read, written in an accessible, upbeat and inclusive style. Well done!"
Your Guide to Audio and Video is absolutely awesome and helpful!! It is so detailed and specific, and has truly blown me away. I would never, ever, have the time to do such thorough and complete research. Thank you VERY much!
