[Athen] ASL Interpretation on Zoom

If the host has their recording settings set to record to the cloud and to record speaker view (this setting must be changed in the host's Zoom web portal<https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201363253-Account-Settings>), the speaker view video file will show the spotlit person. You can only spotlight one person at a time for this to work. Multi spotlight returns the recording to the actual speaker. Spotlighting also disables pinning, but participants can choose gallery view in the upper right corner of their screen to stop spotlighting the interpreter.

RIT has documentation for what is working on our campus<https://wiki.rit.edu/display/ZOOM/Enabling+ASL+Interpretation+in+Zoom>.

Hi Robin,

The instructor needs to change their recording settings to include both the screen share and gallery view - but depending on how big the class is, this may not be helpful.

At the University of Arizona, we encourage faculty to allow students to multi-pin participants and record a local copy of their Zoom meeting https://drc.arizona.edu/instructors/asl-zoom

I am posting this question for our Interpreter Coordinator at Pikes Peak Community College.

Instructor recording on ZOOM cut out the interpreters once a screen share is initiated. The response from Zoom was to have the interpreters record from their location then share it with the deaf student. That is not appropriate or reasonable. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience that might be helpful?

Thank you!
