How to use a simultaneous translator

Most of the apps that we will point out in this guide require Internet access to be able to carry out their task correctly: what we pronounce is sent to a dedicated server which, at lightning speed, will provide us with the translated and correctly pronounced text ( it will be enough to let our interlocutor listen).
For best results we recommend that you always connect to a free Wi-Fi hotspot (always available in big cities) or to use the connection LTE or 4G +.
