Here is what's new this week on Hopin:
Hopin now supports Spanish as a display language.
Attendees can translate their Hopin event into Spanish by selecting Spanish from the Languages menu (you can find this by clicking your profile image in the top right corner of the screen).
We made accessibility improvements:
- Hopin now announces the logical regions of the app to screen reader users so they have a better sense of where they are in the event.
- Users can now navigate to all event areas using the navigation bar and a screen reader.
