Facetime / videoconferencing / receive a call on my MM

I have just come across this subject which is more than 2 years old : Facetime chat for a noob?
I would really like to find a beginning of answer to this question. In my fablab, we are looking for a solution to make videoconferencing via the mirror. The project is aimed at people with cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, and they are unable to use traditional videoconferencing applications.
If any of you know of a module that would partially meet this need, or if anyone would like to help me work on it, it would be very helpful because I’m not a great developer.
Thank you for reading me, and I hope to hear from you quickly
@tom_labhidouille i am not aware of anything like that but i have usage questions
how do you think the users might interact w the mirror to invoke this function. all of the ways i can imagine take a lot of cognitive skill.
even inbound/receiving a call demands significant skill
this looks like it might be a decent basis for what u are asking for

Hey Sdetweil, thanks for your answer!
For the way to interact, we don’t have a definitive solution. It seems that on the market there are facial recognition solutions that automatically pick up when the person is in front of the tablet, but it’s really expensive (It’s a french product, you can look at https://linote.fr/).
For a start, I’m just thinking about a big button that blinks, and it picks up when you press it. For the people we’re helping, it would be a step forward.
To call someone, it could be a voice command. You press the button, you say the name of the person, and the voice recognition will call the concerned person.
Thanks for your link, I’ll look at it!
