Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a physical book?
The Interpreter's Guide to Audio and Video is a digital book in PDF format that you can read on any device. The digital format is cheaper, more versatile and more interactive, e.g. with clickable links to additional content!
How is this different from your Remote Interpreting from Home course?
We've tried to cover everything you need to know about audio and video for remote interpreting in this guide. If you're interested in other topics (liability, working conditions, tech-savvy communications with colleagues, and tons more), our Remote Interpreting from Home course is for you.
Does the book tell me which gear I should buy?
Yes! We've done the research so you don't have to. The guide is packed with specs - including tables listing our favorite microphones, headphones and headsets and a detailed discussion of why we love them. You'll walk away with tons of practical advice and tips and will be able to find your perfect setup. 😁
How much will good gear cost?
Some gear is worth splurging on, while other options may only be necessary if you're looking for a high-end solution. Surprisingly, price isn't always a good indicator. What really matters: the right features.
We've tested out dozens of tools and learned which ones are really worth purchasing. The book includes The Ultimate Audio and Video Purchasing Guide to save you the guesswork. It includes a comparison of different options, our recommended tools at different price points, and where to spend - and save!
Will this book teach me how to coach clients to provide good sound?
Yes! You'll find a whole chapter on coaching and communicating with your clients in the guide, including handy tips and videos you can share with them, a cheat sheet for perfect practice runs, and an outline for an elevator pitch to get your audio and video suggestions for clients down pat. 🤩
