You don't even have to register an account (unless you need persistent rooms). Just visit https://senfcall.de/en/ - klick on "start meeting", enter meeting name (password optional), press "start" enter your name and have fun senfing. The call-invite link you find at the top of the chat.
@senfcall Can you enable English as a fallback language in settings of the bbb instance? Currently the instance is always in German and having English as a fallback will be useful to a lot of people. See https://github.com/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton/issues/6757 for how to enable it.
hey @praveen , the majority of our users are German so we unfortunately can not change the fallback to english right now. However, the language detection works pretty well in most cases. Only when you use #senfcall without an account you can run into trouble. If you register an account, you should be fine (https://www.senfcall.de/en/help#account-registration).
Thanks for the tip about creating an account. Do you know if BBB support an option to set language from a URL parameter ? If it allows choosing a language from the interface that can work as well, may be I should file an issue.
It seems like the API does not offer that. However, be reminded, that #senfcall uses its own join mechanism, so there is some text which will always stay german, while #BigBlueButton should detect your browsers language correctly and set the language accordingly.
@praveen also you can change the language in the preferences (three dot menu in the top right corner).
I have opened an issue with BBB https://github.com/bigbluebutton/bigbluebutton/issues/12795
