• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

If this is the wrong forum please move it.

I was thinking. Not a lot of people speak French and people may want to listen to an area that only speaks French. I was wondering if there is a way to pass this on to Lindsay, that all foreign feeds have an option that you can listen either in French or English.

I know the audio is broadcasted in French but was wondering if there is a way to make it so other people can listen in like tourists or scanner hobbyists. Also areas that speak Spanish not everyone can understand it as well.

I think it would be a great idea what do you guys think?

Huh? Are you suggesting that feeds in French or Spanish be somehow "translated" into English? How exactly is that supposed to be accomplished in real time, except to hire full-time translators? Highly impractical, if not outright impossible, and such a service would cost a fortune.

Not a lot of people speak French
About 136 million people worldwide speak it as a mother tongue (about 2%). Around 190 million people speak French as a second language (that's a bit less than 3%, 2.8) and an additional 200 million speak it as an acquired foreign language (3%) .French speaking communities exist in 57 countries and territories.
