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.

Re: learning zoom

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

One thing about settings on the zoom client for windows. When you are arrowing down through the options, you have to press enter to choose that option before tabbing in to it. I don’t think jaws tells you that and it can be a bit disconcerting. For instance, if you want to change audio settings, when you are arrowing down, press enter on audio, then tab in. You will probably have to choose what speakers and mic you are using here, especially if you are not planning to use the default sound source. Your best bet is a USB headset, wireless or otherwise. I have not used Bluetooth.

 

One more thing, I’m not sure if you are planning to do any hosting, but if you are I strongly suggest you purchase the professional jaws scripts for zoom. They were written by Brian Hartgen in the UK and they are always kept up to date. The scripts are a must if you want to have control over the participants list, waiting room, etc.

If you are interested let me know and I will send you the link. I can also send you the documentation for the scripts so you can read about all the advantages of using them.

 

Good luck and please reach out if you require assistance.

 

Cheers.

Why do you say it won't work efficiently? Something being out of support has nothing to do with how well it works unless conditions change over time such as a browser that is years old not being able to work with new Internet code.

It may be that if something is out of support long enough, it won't work properly in a new version of Windows, but a lot of old programs still work well.

Re: how do you add a signature to your outgoing messages in outlook 2010/?

Also, your experience with Outlook 2010 means nothing by itself in terms of concluding how the program runs in general. You can't generalize from one person's experience with one computer. That's why programs are beta tested by a large group of people. A program may work well on one machine and not as well or display a bug on another. I don't know anything about your specific machine. there may be something about it which causes the program not to run well. That doesn't mean it runs poorly in general.

If it turns out that a lot of people report to us that the program no longer works well in Windows 10, that will support your position that that version of that specific program no longer works well often or ;perhaps on a lot or most machines. But we need enough reports to mean something before reaching a tentative conclusion.

I'm sorry but you are just wrong about programs needing updates to continue
to work smoothly. That is such a generalizationb that is wrong. Some
programs that work well in Windows 7 don't work in Windows 10 or don't work
well. Most programs do.

I didn't say that programs will work forever as Windows changes. I have no
idea how many programs that work well today and are not supported will do so
in five years. I suspect many will. Perhaps you will believe others who
may participate in the thread and tell you what I'm telling you.

Gene,
Come on now! We all have to eventually update programs in order for them to
work smoothly. One can only get so much out of a program when it is not
supported. Oh sure, one can still use it, but the program will run much
more smoothly when it receives updates. I myself use Outlook 2010, and it
is barely hanging on.

Re: Enabling line-in in Windows 10

Howard Traxler
 

Back in the day, the magnetic cartrage was the thing; whether it be moving magnet or moving coil.  This cartrage required an additional stage of pre-amplification.  Feeding it directly into a sound card (to my knowledge) just wouldn't work.  Hence I have a discrete pre-amp for between the turntable and sound card; or my stereo receiver has a magnetic cartrage input that does the same thing.

Back in the day, I was very critical of the sound that was produced; however, at my age, my hearing is not what it was andmost of my music listening is for background.  So, sound doesn't need to be as good as 40 years ago.

I’m sorry to say, but MS has stopped supporting Outlook as of Oct 2020. You
can still use it, but just don’t expect it to work efficiently though. You
will need to upgrade this as well. Not much good news about MS and Outlook

Jim,

I forgot to tell you how to create a signature, so here it goes. 

 

1, alt+f

 

2, up arrow and enter on options,

Or simply press the letter t for options.

 

3, down arrow until you hear mail.

 

4, now tab until you hear;

Signatures....button, press enter.

now you can use the tab key and should be able to find the edit field.

 

Type your signature

Don’t forget to save your changes. 

 

 

Janet

Jim,
What I would do with your PC, check the updates, if no updates, I would check the space on your PC, and set it up to do a reset, and be done with it. If something was to go wrong, you would blame me, and I couldn't blame you for that. When I say I would love to get my hands on that, I mean have the PC in my possession, so this way you couldn't blame me! Smile! Can you tell me what are the steps you use to check for the update on your PC?

Gene,
Come on now! We all have to eventually update programs in order for them to work smoothly. One can only get so much out of a program when it is not supported. Oh sure, one can still use it, but the program will run much more smoothly when it receives updates. I myself use Outlook 2010, and it is barely hanging on.

Why do you say it won't work efficiently? Something being out of support
has nothing to do with how well it works unless conditions change over time
such as a browser that is years old not being able to work with new Internet
code.

It may be that if something is out of support long enough, it won't work
properly in a new version of Windows, but a lot of old programs still work
well.

Re: Braille Displays

Joe,

I will certainly look at the Braille Sense. I have used the ElBraille
before and am currently training a few people on it. It does lag at
times. And at others, some of the function keys temporarily don't
work.

If your choices came down to those two devices, go with the Braille
Sense. There is absolutely no competition there. I think Freedom
Scientific did its best to come up with a good Windows PC replacement,
but the processor is ridiculously slow. The Braille Sense has enormous
horse power by comparison. Also, the Braille Sense is going to let you
do more dynamic things. This is just one person’s opinion, but if you
do a spec by spec comparison, the Braille Sense wins on all counts.

Good luck!
