Earlier this fall, Zoom announced the rollout of Sign Language interpretation on version 5.12.0 of its desktop client. The release notes’ bare bones text, however, provided only a basic description of what the feature allows hosts to do without actually outlining how to operate the feature. After a few days experimenting with this new feature, I prepared a document that offers some guidance on the steps required to activate Sign Language interpretation for hosts and participants alike, as well as an initial discussion on some of the features’ limitations and possible workarounds. That document is available to view here with a video demo below. Updated to reflect some of Zoom’s guidance on the feature (released after our initial draft and linked to in the document).
