Thanks for the information! My concern is that with some of the apps, if a
participant isn't active (i.e. talking) then their video box disappears. I
know there's the option to have a separate "meeting" for the user and the
interpreter, but I was curious about general experiences as well as how the
various vid conferencing apps handled the video box.
