What equipment do I need?

Each environment is different, but the basics are the same. Chances are you might already have everything you need to run Web Captioner.

Microphone or other audio input device

You'll get the best result when the person that is speaking is wearing or holding a microphone.

Examples of types of microphones that work well with Web Captioner:

Computer running Google Chrome and Web Captioner

As long as it can run the Google Chrome web browser and you can connect a microphone to it, it'll work. This includes Macs, PCs, and Chromebooks. Web Captioner currently doesn't work on phones or tablets, even if they have a Google Chrome app.

Optional: A larger display or projector

You could connect your computer to a larger display for your audience to view captions. Or if you're only showing captions to one person, you might just want to have them watch the display on the computer running Web Captioner.
