> Spotted in the Zoom blog post about their Zoomtopia 2019 event:
> https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2019/10/15/zoomtopia-2019-unified-communications-platform/
> "*Simultaneous interpretation: *Users bring their own interpreters and
> Zoom provides multiple audio channels that mix the original and interpreter
> audio at an optimal ratio that enables the listener to understand the
> interpreter but also hear the tone of the original speaker."
> This would obviously be interesting to test when Zoom (and presumably
> ICANN will enable)
> Other things of note :
> "Zoom Chat -* Comments and reactions (beta): *These enhancements organize
> conversations happening in parallel and allow users to react to specific
> messages with emojis, greatly improving the user experience."
> *"Zoom Meetings*
>    - *Live transcripts:* Following the success of recording transcripts,
>    this AI-based functionality powered by Otter.ai transcribes Zoom
>    meetings <https://zoom.us/beta?zcid=1231> in real-time and saves
>    transcripts for future reference.
>    - *Meeting notes, action items, and timelines: *Users may take notes
>    directly in the Zoom interface or use Zoom’s live transcription (see above)
>    for voice note taking. Notes and AI-derived action-items are automatically
>    made available to invited meeting participants after the meeting via
>    Meeting Timelines.
>    - *Video and slideshow virtual backgrounds: *New capabilities for
>    mixed-reality virtual backgrounds include support for videos and Microsoft
>    PowerPoint files, in addition to existing JPEG support."
