Real Time Conferences for Everyone. Any Time. Any Place. Any Language.
Conf.io allows speakers to deliver real time video seminars to over 250 participants at a time. During the seminars, the presenter's voice is transcribed in real time to all of the participants in the conference and translated into 64 different languages. Participants may enter questions for the speaker which are added to the conference transcript, which may be copied or printed.
Since, Conf.io relies on Chrome's Web Speech API, using it requires Google Chrome 25 or later. To get started, either join an active speaker's conference or create a new one. Select your language and speak clearly and watch you voice be transcribed. Get a friend to join and have them select a different language and watch as your voice is translated into their language in real time. Better yet, grab a friend who speaks a foreign language and join their conference to communicate without a language barrier.

Sorry you had a poor experience! Thank you for the design and innovation points!
Thanks! Yes, the voice recognition definitely needs some work. We appreciate the props on concept!
Thanks so much for your time and rating, Tom, it is very appreciated!
Thanks for your feedback. One of our next goals is definitely to improve the interaction between participants!
Thanks so much!
Thank you! Very appreciated!
Thanks for your rating!
Thanks a lot! We will definitely give the UI some love!
Thanks a lot! The speech recognition definitely is the weak link, but given time, I think we will start to see real improvements on that front.
Awesome, thanks! Love your NodeKick app!
Thanks for your feedback!

Yes, the main experience being at the mercy of this early implementation of the Web Speech API is definitely a pain point right now. Thanks so much for your feedback and time - we look forward to the future possibilities!
So awesome to hear that! We look forward to future development!
Thanks for the feedback! Many-to-many video is definitely in the future.
Thanks for the great feedback and suggestions!
Thanks a lot! Will have to look into the mic access prompt - I do know that unless using SSL (which we are not), chrome requires you to grant access every time the recognition opens. Something may have gotten funky and kept opening and closing the recognition. Thanks for pointing this out - I will make sure it gets addressed!
Thanks! We plan on fine-tuning the translation of text questions as well as possibly giving the questioning participant the "floor" (video audio and transcript) side by side with presenter.
hope y'all will try to pimp this to universities!

YOU are incredible. Thank you so much.
Thanks for the feedback! Hopefully we will see better Web Speech API support across browsers in the near future!
Thanks for the feedback! We appreciate it very much.
Thanks Ben, and good to know about not having a partner! Maybe I will stalk the site and play stand-in for anyone who pops in. We appreciate the feedback!
Thanks so much!
make sure you click the "allow" button in chrome at the top of the window to give access to your camera and microphone. thanks for the props and hope you can get it working!
Actually sounds like your speaker was the one who rejected the access to video/audio - thanks for pointing this out, we should handle this better.
That is awesome to hear. Thank you very much!
Thanks so much for the great feedback! Both suggestions are very valuable and are sure to make it in post-competition!
Oh no! Are you using Chrome 25 or later? Web Speech API is only available from there up. What exactly was the problem?
Thanks a lot! Testing the Web Speech API after the first 24 hours created some fun delirium-induced laughing fits when it gets it wrong.

thanks! we were aiming for many-to-many video, but as time ran out, we decided to replace it with the text question.
many-to-many video is definitely on the list for post judging!
thanks a lot, we appreciate the feedback!
