Re: WhatsApp for PC


Timothy Mok
 

Pretty simple, really. First, I launch my WhatsApp desktop on my PC. On my iPhone, I entered the settings for WhatsApp, then swipe right till I come to WhatsApp Web Desktop, enter that and swipe until I come to "Scan QR code" button. With my back camera facing the monitor from a distance of twelve to fourteen inches, I align my iPhone SE to the bottom left side of the PC monitor. Double-tap on the "Scan QR code" button on the phone and I'm set to go. It's night time here and pitch dark. I find I still can sync my phone with my desktop even with the room light off. By the way, except for Internet Explorer, a check just now showed the WhatsApp Web Desktop worked well with the latest versions of all my other browsers, namely, Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and even my Avast! Secure Browser which is accessible with JAWS but not NVDA. Hope this helps.
Tim.

Both my wife and I are as blind as bats and I did it all by myself without any sighted assistance.

Hi all
I think you should ask a sighted people for help of the first time
connect if you're totaly blind. Sounds like whatsapp web will
remember your login info so you just do that once for a browser. Let's try!

Hi all:

Does anyone have experience using the WhatsApp for PC platform
with Jaws or NVDA? I’m planning to install for a client but not
sure how it will work. Any thoughts?

Thanks
Kerry
