This can be done manually using the volume slider for each user. If there is only 4 active speakers in a room, not a bad choice…
Yes… but no !
The purpose is not to find a workaround for one simple case with the existing features, but to think about a global solution that respond to any needs.
For exemple, if I made a webinar with 5 experts which each speak in a different language (for exemple : polish, russian, french, italian, greek), so for a traduction language I must have :
- 1 polish to target language traductor
- 1 russian to target language traductor
- 1 french to target language traductor
- 1 italian to target language traductor
- 1 greek to target language traductor
(Note : If the target language is polish, there is no need to have a “polish to polish” traductor, so there will be only 4 traductors)
So if I want to offer a polish, russian, french, italian, greek and also english traduction I must have 25 traductors (it’s how it works during international meetings).
(Note : 25 = 4 traductors for each 5 expert language + 5 traductors for english)
In this conditions, I can’t deal with manual volume sliders in a jitsi room with about +30 peoples…
(Note : and “+30” is only for the experts, traductors and administrators of the webinar, but what about the xxx viewers ?)
