Displaying Wordly On a Monitor
Enter Session Details
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.
Click “More Options” drop-down menu to reveal the Passcode box.
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.
New Frame 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.
Choose the language for the displayed text.
Choose a custom font color through either entering hex code or picking from the gradient square.
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.
Choose font size of displayed text.
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.
Add A Frame
Select the plus button to add another language frame. When you press the button, the Frame Settings window will open to select which language you want and format the new 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.
Even as you adjust your settings to distinguish each frame. We recommend maintaining high contrast between the font and background colors.
Next to the Edit Frame button is an X button that allows you to close a frame.
The circle arrow button after the Add Frame Button will clear all text from the current frames.
Full Screen Mode
To enter full screen mode, select the box button . This will hide the Wordly Display controls.
However, this button will not hide your browser’s controls. In your browser, go to View -> Enter Full Screen Mode to display just the session translation(s).
To change the translation frames from stacked vertically to stacked horizontally and vice versa, press the three-bars button .
Above we have shown examples of vertical oriented frames. Horizontal orientation looks like this:
The copy link button creates a link that saves your frame format choices.
After using the link, you can enter any session ID, and automatically get all the frame formatting you had when creating the link.
The last button on the upper right, an open door icon , will allow you to switch displayed sessions by entering a new session ID.
Exit Wordly Display
To close Wordly Display, just close the browser window.
