Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

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.

Re: NVDA Settings

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.

There is usually a Zoom link, telephone number, I.D. number and password when you get the invitation.
Directions are always included with the invitation.

Cordially, Ms. E. Kirtley

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,

Margaret

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

Well, firstly, glad that you made it.

As to deleting a whole bunch of messages quickly, I don't know whether this
will work in Outlook, but I had around
180,000 messages in my Inbox when I got Thunderbird, and I selected almost
all of them, because there were a few at the bottom that I wanted to keep,
and then hit shift-delete, and they were all gone in a couple minutes.

Be aware though, that shift-delete sends them to oblivion, not to the
Deleted or Trash folder, or whatever Outlook calls it, so be very sure you
want them all gone before you try that. I don't think you'll be able to get
them back if you change your mind later.

Hi all,

Jeff, first of all, I'm delighted that you have recovered from the virus and
are well. It must have been dreadful!

As for deleting messages, I'd select them in bunches using shift
downarrow. then hitting the delete key. Do say twenty-five at a time.

So, all I would do is call a meeting number, then enter the
passcode? That is exactly like Go to Meeting. If that is the
case, I am very relieved, but want to learn what to do, if
there is more to it, thanks.

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.

There are commands that can be done by phone. The two I found listed in zoom help are:
*6 - Toggle mute/unmute
and
*9 - Raise hand.
There is a star before these numbers. that may indicate that the starr, or key to the left of 0 must be pressed first.

Re: Zoom Workshop By Landline

Gary Ray here.

Yes, you can attend by land line phone.

You may have to insist that the folks who set the meeting up provide you with call in instructions including number to call and the code.

There is an encryption issue that might get in the way of using the call in method. Again, you might have to insist that the folks who arrange the meeting set it up so you can call in.

I have unlimited long distance on my land line phone. If you don't it might be a problem.

I hope this helps!

Hi all,

<smiling> thanks, I guess! Yes, Eeyore does give good information on occasion. I just wish he could be a little less negative.

BTW, Warranty is for one year on Smart Vision2. Might I suggest that instead of assuming, you know what happens to people who do that, Eeyore might call Irie-AT and get all his questions answered.
