Stanford is right down the road from me. I used to go to the Palo Alto campus frequently for interpreting gigs. Nowadays I go as part of my participation in a Covid-19 study.
Today I'd like to convey to you a Stanford study highlighting four causes of "Zoom fatigue." They are not surprising: (1) Not moving around and (2) having a weird view of people are the usual things mentioned. What intrigued me more are the two others: (1) looking at oneself, as if in a mirror, can sap self-confidence. Who knew? And then cognitive load, which for interpreters is vastly greater even than for other participants. I explain the reasons for that in the YouTube video to the right.
