You can definitely try. However, please keep in mind that background noise negatively influences the accuracy of the transcriptions.

To have more accurate transcriptions it's needed that the participants hold the microphone close to their mouth while speaking. Since this might not be that convenient during diner, an alternative solution could be the usage of external (lapel) microphones. These can be attached to the shirt of the participants. We would be happy to give you a recommendation!

The louder the background noise, the harder it gets for Ava to accurately transcribe what's being said. It's crucial that everybody holds their smartphone close to their mouth when speaking, to get the most out of Ava. We would encourage you to ask everybody to download the app in advance, so that you don't have to do this on the spot.
