Microphones enable the interpreters to follow what is being said and can also be used for PA systems and event recording. The type of microphones that needs to be installed will depend on the type of conference.

Types of microphone include:

  • Lectern microphones that allow the speaker to talk directly to the audience.
  • Tie/lapel microphones that permit the wearer to walk and talk.
  • Table microphones that can be administered by the system operator or by individual delegates.
  • Stand microphones that are placed around a conference hall allow audience members to walk up and ask questions.
  • ‘Question and Answer’ style mics that are hand held and can be taken to individual audience members when they want to speak.


For conferences each delegate generally has a headset with which they can listen to the live translation. Word Perfect headsets consist of a small boxed receiver and light weight headset. Our receivers are capable of tuning into multiple channels (6 to 16) by using an easy switch and volume levels are set individually with a gain control.

Transmission System

Word Perfect Translations use a wireless transmission system that uses the infrared spectrum to carry audio signals to the delegate receivers. The system works much in the same way as light – reflecting off walls and other solid surfaces. The transmission is sent out from infrared radiators that are installed on stands or ceiling bars. Our system provides accurate voice reproduction of speakers, simultaneous interpreters, and other original sound sources, such as Powerpoint presentations.
