Using Sign Language Interpretation in Zoom


U-M Zoom


I would like to use the dedicated viewing for sign language interpreters in Zoom. How do I do that?


NOTE: There are several limitations to enabling this feature. Please review these before continuing.

The sign language interpretation feature in Zoom allows a host to designate up to 20 participants in a meeting as sign language interpreters. This in turn allows participants to view a dedicated window for their chosen interpreter. 

This Zoom help article explains how to enable this feature as a host and how to utilize it as the interpreter or participant of the meeting. For participants, it is important to note that you will not be able to interact with this feature unless the host has enabled it.
