In-Person: Persons attending Council meetings in person should bring a mobile device and earbuds (if they wish to listen to the translation).
QR codes to access the translation services are available on meeting agendas and on the monitor in Council Chambers prior to the start of the meeting.
Online: Residents watching Council meetings online can find the link to the translation service on the City meetings webpage.
Once you’ve clicked the link or scanned the QR code, a Wordly screen will open, inviting you to the meeting. Click “Attend.” This will take you to the transcription page. To change the language, click the language button in the upper-right-hand corner. Over 30 languages are available to choose from, including Spanish.
The service will automatically begin transcribing the audio of the meeting in your chosen language. If you would prefer to listen to the translation, click the three dots in the upper-right-hand-corner and select “Select Voice.”
