    86 == Limitations ==
     63== With Simultaneous Interpretation ==
    88  * Jitsi meet works best with 20 or fewer participants.
     65If you have a live, human interpreter and you would like your meeting to be interpreted between two different languages, you can use our special Interpretation-enabled version of Jitsi Meet, by adding an "i" to the beginning of the address:
     691. The Interpreter must change their name to include the word "interpret" in it - so they can be identified as the interpreter
     702. A language slider will appear at the top of the screen - allowing you to hear either the interpreter or the live speakers.
     72Our interpretation enhanced version of Jitsi Meet does not work with the Jitsi Meet apps - either the desktop apps or the mobile apps. Everyone will need to participate via either the Firefox or Chrome browser via their desktop.
     74== General Limitations ==
     76 * Jitsi meet works best with 20 or fewer participants, but seems to work with as many as 50 or 60 participants.
    8977 * If just one participant is using an un-supported browser (like an older version of Firefox or Internet Edge/Explorer or Safari) it can make the entire meeting fail.
    9078 * To conserve bandwidth, only the last 8 participants who have spoken will have their video streams sent to everyone else.
