What are the capabilities of the Kudo integration?
The Kudo integration enables audio translations of stages and sessions via a widget in the right-hand panel of a Hopin event. Kudo sources interpreters from its marketplace of +10,000 world-class interpreters.
Additionally, Kudo is also able to offer 147 sign languages that can be added to your event, making it accessible for everyone.
Attendees will see a 'Translations' tab, from which they'll be able to select from the languages provided by the event organizer. Attendees will have to mute the stage or session audio manually so that they can hear only the translation audio.
What plans is the Kudo integration available on?
Kudo is available to Hopin's Business and Enterprise plans. There is an additional cost to using the Kudo integration that depends on the number of languages and length of the event.
What are the limitations of the current Kudo integration?
Attendees must mute all of the speakers in the relevant area to be able to clearly hear the translation (if they do not, they will get both the original audio and the translated audio over the top of each other).
How do I set up the Kudo integration?
You'll need a Kudo account and links for the Kudo widget to set up the Kudo integration. You can get started with the Kudo order form.
Once you have your Kudo link, you can set up Kudo in any stage, session or expo booth. First, head to the 'Integrations' page in your organiser dashboard, find the Kudo integration, click on it and use the 'Install' button on the Kudo app page.
You can now configure Kudo in your event. Choose an event and navigate to the relevant area of your event dashboard by navigating to Event Dashboard > Venue > Stage/Session/Expo (for this example we'll use a Session). In the Integrations section of the configuration page, you'll see fields that will allow you to name the tab in the event, specify the Kudo ID, and enable the integration.
You can now name the tab (for Kudo, a common name is something like 'Translations'), and provide the Kudo ID (the ID will be the code at the end of your Kudo link, e.g. the '770112261248' in the link https://audio-widget.kudoway.com/770112261248). Once these have been provided, click the checkbox and save the configuration.
You can now use the 'Preview Event' button in the top right hand corner to check the Kudo app in the relevant event area.
You can repeat these steps for any event area that should contain the Kudo widget, and you're ready to go!
