Re: NVDA Settings

Quentin Christensen
 

You can install over the top of the new version, that shouldn't cause any problems.  When I said "NVDA+n, t", firstly your NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK, depending on how you have NVDA setup - so press INSERT+N to open the NVDA menu, then T for Tools was what I meant.

And yes, if you install the full version from the portable and ensure you check the box to copy your settings over (and do that when you create the portable version in the first place also btw).

Kind regards
Quentin.

I already installed NVDA on the new system. Should I uninstall it before performing these instructions?

Also I am not sure what you mean by "run NVDA +n,t.

And do I then install the full version from the portable? I  have never used a portable copy.

If you use the computer for Zoom, which numbers do you use?
Do you have to turn on Num Lock, then turn it off again?

Hi all,

Any Zoom invitation I've ever seen, and I've seen a
multitude in the past ten days, includes phone numbers. You
just dial the phone number and when you're asked for the
code just type it in. If there's a password, you may have
to type that in too. It's very simple.

It doesn't matter what kind of phone. I'm not sure what information you need to attend by phone. Most invitations I get don't include such information. But even if that information isn't included, I think you can still attend if you know how.

Hi, All:

A local agency is having a virtual workshop later this month that I want to attend. "All of the workshops will be held at 11 AM on Zoom.
Participants can participate via phone or video." I don't have a microphone and my phone is a landline. After I register, and , presumably, get the invitation, will I still be able to attend? I just read a slew of posts about Zoom, but the people who mentioned attending by phone all had smart phones. My computer is a Win 10 desktop.

Thanks,

Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

Olusegun, rain gone now. Bright and sunny day here, and
starting this afternoon, with some great help, I have a
pretty good handle on WhatsApp, which I never thought would
happen. So, I'm thinking there is hope for Zoom.

There used to be so much talk about it, and for a while, I
thought it was some kind of magnification program for
partially-sighted people, so to my regret, I deleted the
posts unopened. That is such an easy thing to do that it
perplexes me about people complaining about posts - way
easier to delete and move on, less energy, all that good
stuff.

Sis Carolyn, how's your day chugging along? I'm asking for
torrential downpour, so, if you're getting too much of that,
please pack them all up and have the good winds blow them
over here <smile>!!

Like you, I schlepp around a few smart toys albeit on the
Android ecosystem.
As such, I have the Zoom app installed on all my toys. To
attend a Zoom meeting, I simply grab one of my toys, enter
the meeting ID Number and I'm good to go. In some cases,
I've had to enter the Pass Code as well. Once I do this,
the particular meeting I am trying to join is identified; I
tap on the audio button and it's all good. I can
participate in a Zoom meeting either on my smart toys or
computer simultaneously. I don't need to dial a phone
number first.

With a landline, and I've never tried it out 'cause I don't
have a landline--the process of connecting to a Zoom meeting
will be a tad longer since the participant needs to find a
phone from the list when the invitation is received, then
the meeting ID and Pass Code. I'll recommend dialing in at
least five or ten minutes before the meeting starts as this
will give the interested participant sufficient time,
methinks to get things more organized if necessary.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado

If all you want to do is listen and talk, using the phone will mean you don't have to install the Zoom application. But the Zoom application is easy to use and you get access to features like seeing information people send in the chat area. but you may not want to learn about these things if all you want to do is listen and talk.

As to deleting a whole bunch of messages quickly, I don't

180,000 messages in my Inbox when I got Thunderbird, and I
selected almost all of them, because there were a few at the

they were all gone in a couple minutes.

Be aware though, that shift-delete sends them to oblivion,

try that. I don't think you'll be able to get them back if

Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

Hi all,

It depends on how you want to access Zoom. You can do it on a computer, use a smart phone or a landline. If you're using a computer, you need a mike, preferrably a headset. You go to zoom.us and download the client for your computer, that makes life so much easier. Then, all you need to do is copy and paste the URL to your browser and press 'enter'. Voila, you're zooming!

Margaret, for most Zoom-related meeting invitations, there
are typically several phone numbers listed. So, all you
need is to grab one of the numbers, make a note of the
meeting ID number and its Pass Code. These will generally
be included in the info you receive once registered for the
meeting.

So, three things to worry about when joining a Zoom meeting
by phone: A phone number to call in, a meeting ID number
that will need to be punched in, and the meeting's Pass
Code.

Now, there are some gestures that are part of Zoom's
keyboard commands, I'm not certain if any of them can be
invoked on any other toy aside from the smart ones.
Example, to raise the hand to be recognized for purposes of
asking a question is Star Sign-9; same gesture lowers the
hand, or the meeting host can lower the raised hand. On the
computer, the keystroke is
Alt+Y!

If you have NO PLANS to ask any questions, but just
listening in, you should be fine using your regular P.O.T.
toy to join your Zoom meeting.
