Displaying Wordly On a Monitor

How to use Wordly Display to display your Wordly session on a monitor.

Go to Wordly Display.

Enter Session Details

Wordly Display Enter Session Details

Session ID

Locate your Session ID by navigating to the desired Session in your Wordly account. The Session ID will be the four letters and four numbers left of the Session Title. The Session ID is also identified in the Session details, revealed when clicking on the Session. The Session ID is below the Presenter and above the Passcode. Wordly Session Page Example Session Details ID and Passcode

More Options

Click the “More Options” drop-down menu to reveal the Passcode and Frame Margins boxes.

To find the Passcode, look below the Session ID in the Session details (accessed by clicking on the desired Session in the Sessions menu)

Also under More Options is the option to “Check this box to show the language names.” If you uncheck this box, the language names will not show in full screen mode.

You can set the margin size around your window and/or text by typing in the Frame Margins boxes. You cannot use negative numbers. Top/Bottom will add space to the top and bottom. Left/Right will add space to the left and right. Safe Area will add extra space between the text and window, recommended for cases where the screen displaying the session has an additional frame.

New Frame Settings

Wordly Display frame format settings Choose the display language and colors for this frame. You can make changes and add additional frames later. NOTE: If you click off this screen, you will return to the Enter Session Details screen. Click “Next” to return to the New Frame Settings screen.

Display Language

Choose the language for the displayed text.

Font Color

Choose a custom font color through either entering hex code or picking from the gradient square.

Frame Color

Choose a custom frame color through either entering a hex code, RGB, or HSL values (accessed by clicking the little arrow buttons). Or pick your color directly from the gradient square. NOTE: Make sure there is high contrast between the font color and frame color for visibility.

Font Size

Choose font size of displayed text.

Additional Settings

Check “show only complete phrases” if you want to hide intermediate translation results and only show completed sentences. This will delay the display of a sentence until the speaker has finished saying it. This can create a more stable experience when the translated language word order is different from the speaker language word order.

In Wordly Display

On the upper right of Wordly Display, you will see various controls. Wordly Display Buttons

Add A Frame

Change a Frame

When displaying multiple languages, you may want to format the frames of each translation separately. In this case, go to your Wordly Display page and select the Edit Frame button on the top right of a displayed translation.

This will pull up the Edit Frame Settings screen. Much like the New Frame screen, you can change font color, background color, and font size.
