Automatic voice-over translation of live broadcasts complements the technology of voice translation of video and interactive subtitles. The technology works on the basis of a neural network, which is able to start translating a sentence even before it is finished.

The function is available only in Yandex Browser, starting from version 22.7.2 for Mac and Windows.
