Best Practices

Learn useful tips for making the best out of your Wordly sessions

Audio Tips

We suggest using high-fidelity audio equipment such as headsets, headphones, earbuds, or boom microphones, preferably with noise-canceling technology.

Advise your presenters to avoid using integrated laptop microphones, which capture too much background noise. If a laptop microphone is the only option available, we suggest turning the microphone gain levels up as high as possible in their laptop system’s audio settings.

Coach your speakers

  • If you have multiple presenters, make sure they know to speak one-at-a-time and avoid interrupting or speaking over each other.

  • Presenters should know to enunciate clearly.

  • Avoid using music with lyrics.

  • Presenters should speak at a moderate pace, pausing between sentences briefly.

  • Advise your presenters to pick a single language to speak in.

  • Make sure your presenters have sufficient bandwidth to support high-quality audio capture.

Create Glossaries

  • Glossaries are custom libraries which significantly increase the accuracy of Wordly’s transcription results. Without a glossary for reference, Worldly may be unable to properly transcribe unique phrases, words, and terminology that may be specific to your organization, employees, or departments. Check out this article to learn how to create glossaries.

  • Make sure to create glossaries for all the languages which presenters will be speaking.

Set Practical Expectations

Many variables can affect the accuracy of Wordly’s translation, including available internet bandwidth and possible issues with hardware, software, and operating systems. Make sure to let your presenters know that while they should expect a great experience with Wordly, errors are possible.
