I haven't used any of these myself, but maybe:

- https://elk.audio/aloha/  (designed for low-latency online jams)

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jami_(software) (FOSS P2P
  videoconferencing - not sure about latency; various codecs available
  including Opus).

- zita-njbridge (though this might be too techie for the other party).

Also, I have tried Signal in the past:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_(software) .  I have some
misgivings about Signal's ethics (Signal devs have been abhorrently
hostile to packaging in F-Droid & distro repos, & sometimes take a
denialist approach to bug reports).  I also haven't measured latency or
closely checked audio quality.  But it is popular, usable,
cross-platform FOSS videoconferencing software.
