Interpreter mode

CONTENTS

Just like an offline meeting with interpretation, participants can conduct the meeting while listening to the interpreter in the language of their choice.

When interpretation is in progress, the volume of participants other than interpreter is adjusted lower to avoid disrupting the meeting.
