Subject: Re: Teams feature request - pinned video for ASL interpreter


Thank you for doing this Geoff! I’ll send out to our Center and to our national network, see if we can get some buzz.


When you posted, was their an option to get this categorized under their Accessibility feature requests? I see that as one of the largest categories in MS Teams User Voice.


Happy Friday!

Hi, folks,


If you have a moment, I hope you’ll consider up-voting this UserVoice request:


Pin a particular user's video feed to always be up as an always-on square (ASL interpretation)


I added a comment to suggest pinning video of ASL interpreter as well as shared content like PowerPoint.


Please up-vote and comment if you think this is useful functionality.
