Re: learning zoom


I don't know if the history differs with an account. I have one without an account. I still have to enter the password but I can use the history to enter a room.

I don't have a ;particular opinion about whether an account is created, I'm saying that if the user wants to keep things more simple, for many people it isn't necessary.

I also think it should be mentioned here that after the client is installed, you should go to the test meeting page. I don't know if the link differs in different parts of the world but you can go here using the browser you want and launch a test meeting in The United States.

There is a join button on the page to start a test meeting, with you the only member. You can look around and play with the Zoom interface while the meeting is in progress and after the application is installed, people can tell you short cuts you might be interested in such as muting and unnmuting yourself, moving to the chat area, moving to the attendees list, and others.

You can test your received audio and your microphone. If you have trouble working with the page, ask about how to use it here.

No but there is no cost to create an account and there are some benefits. Retaining a meeting history is one such benefit. This means if you are attending a class, or other sinarios where you will be joining the same room more than once, you can do it through history instead of following the link in an email.

If you are using Zoom without an account now, if you are going to use it in the same way on a computer, you don't need an account. You don't need one to participate in a meeting or to download the application.

Hi Heather.

Since you’ve been using zoom off your iPhone I’m assuming you already have
an account?

Go to the zoom web site:

Sign in with your email and password. You’ll next want to download the zoom
meetings client and install it. You should then be able to follow a zoom
link in an email to join a meeting. It’s a good idea to go through your
audio settings to make sure it’s set to automatically connect to audio when
you join the meeting. You won’t need a camera unless you want meeting
participants to see you.

Jaws has better support for zoom than NVDA does if using jaws 2020 or 2021,
There is also a training webinar on the freedom scientific web site that
should give you all you need. Link is below.

using zoom with jaws

I hope this helps. Please feel to reach out should you have other questions.

Hello, I know how to use zoom off my i-devices but, I am going to be taking
a class that requires me to use zoom off my computer. So is there anyone who
can show me how to use zoom off the pc? Do I need to download zoom as an app
threw the windows store; is it better to use jaws or NVDA; I want to use the
brave browser like I have been using. Do I need a camera I currently do not
have a camera access off my pc. I have a headset wired or Bluetooth.

Thanks Heather
