Re: learning zoom

Well, think my problem was solved today when my pc finally updated to the latest build. So it was why it kept opening zoom when I tested it out this afternoon. I guess it was a windows installed application. So I pulled it out of the shell apps folder and created a shortcut off my desktop. Thanks to everyone for all the help, I appreciate it. I was told to use zoom off my pc on Saturday morning for my class that starts tomorrow. So I take it jaws works best with zoom? Thanks Heather

Interesting. Zoom.us is the official site so you would think the software would be safe. I’m not aware of a zoom app that can be purchased from the ms store but their could be.

Hello, I got a notice off the zoom site that this could harm my pc, so is there a site that does not have this issue? So I went to ninite.com, it gave me the same message from my windows security. So is it better to get the app from the Microsoft store? I had a friend who downloaded type of program and it came with a trojan.   I did not want that to happen to me. Thanks Heather

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.

https://zoom.us/test

 

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:

 

www.zoom.us

 

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.

 

 

 

Cheers.

 

 

 

Chris.

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
