Hello Simon:

I have a question about simultaneous translation via Omniverse Maxime. In this YouTube example, a live speaker is behind the scene talking. Can her speech be translated in real-time to other languages?

Thanks very much.

Hi @user56454 ,

Yes, her speech can be translated in real-time to other languages. That is Nvidia’s Riva providing this real-time translation and part of the Maxine solution.
