In language documentation/ linguistic science situations, where the
interview is not just sought for the content story but also the phonetics
and articulating value of the interview. I usually suggest that the
interviewer record three streams: first a local device for the interviewee
audio/video with an appropriate mic placement. And then one for the
interviewer. And then something that is going to record both streams of the
audio and video of Skype or zoom other tool of choice. The local devices
(like using a zoom h4n) will record in higher fidelity, while the recording
of the telecommunication stream will record the context of the interview.
All the best,
