Re: New Book on Using Zoom Now Available From the Carroll Center

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Ann,

I think we're actually talking about two separate issues.

1. Zoom on a Chromebook. While the Chromebook is able to run Android apps Chromebooks aren't Android devices. They run Chrome OS and they do use a screen reader called ChromeVox. That being said I have no idea how easy it is to use and how it handles Android apps or if Talkback can even run on the device.

2. It may be necessary for some people to learn Zoom but it is not necessary for everyone. Some institutions and organizations use alternatives, such as Google Meet or Microsoft Teams. Some organizations are having nothing to do with Zoom due to past security concerns. Some individuals may choose to avoid it for the same reasons and I respect that just as some want nothing to do with Facebook or Ring cameras and doorbells. There are people, both blind and sighted, who have chosen Android as their operating system of choice. If a book doesn't address the needs of Android users then it's understandable that a user would choose to not order it in the same way that I wouldn't order a book covering Microsoft 365 on the Mac and iOS if my operating system of choice is Windows.

That is true. Jonathan’s book is three years old now, and aside from some minor changes the majority of the material is still relevant. There is no reason to believe Heathers book will be any different.

Hi all,

Hmmm, Well, I suppose I know what to do if Aqua, my cousin, calls me, and I'm pretty sure I know that cerise is calling to complain about her teenaged son, but what on earth does Puce want? I've gotten four calls from Puce in the past three days. I don't even know Puce! Must be a robo call. Now I hope that it's not like Chartreuse who wants me to sign up for volunteering for The United Way. I'm just not answering from any color I don't know. Really, these robo colors are enough to drive you to drink!

Original message:

While we have the option to adjust the same settings in iOS, unlike Google, iOS does not save your contacts into Google. So when you are expecting to hear the colors name you were here call from and then they either have to say their name or you have to go online and program it into the Google contacts. I have this feature disabled As you will never know if one is going to say their name or not.

Re: New Book on Using Zoom Now Available From the Carroll Center

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

I agree with Gene. It's true that Zoom is definitely doing a lot of tweeking as they adjust features to ensure better security. We will also likely see new features being added in another 45 days or so. In six months Zoom may change enough so that there may be some differences between the content of the book and the Zoom application itself. However, barring a major overhaul I doubt that the book will become obsolete that quickly. Also, the author could add to the book and make corrections to it at a future date, as is the case with many authors and publishers who release books covering mainstream applications like Windows, Office, etc.

Your number will not expire unless you do not use it for more than 6

tell you to use your google number or it will expire. So no need to
worry about loosing the number. I have 2 google voice numbers and I
can receive phone calls from both of them at the same time on the same

Google Voice numbers are free! Besides Google Voice, there are apps
like 2nd Line, Sideline, Burner, TextNow, etc. that are similarly
situated. Some of these apps have ads but, in general, they are
usable should you seek to have more than one phone number.

One caveat: These apps work over WI-FI and you don't even need a SIM
card to deploy any of them.

The apps discussed here are available from the Google Play Store,

I have no objection to such books but for a lot of users, who only want to attend meetings, don't want to host any, and probably don't even need an account, they don't need to know much. Probably a five or ten minute small tutorial or perhaps the equivalent of three or four pages in a document would tell them all they need.
I should clarify that it may be that a separate five or ten minute tutorial and a separate text file of about the length I am estimating might be necessary for different ways of using the system, such as on a Windows computer, on a mobile phone, and perhaps there are other ways. I haven't looked at the books being offered but if they are long or of moderate length and if they don't have a section in the beginning for the casual user, they may discourage people from using Zoom because they may get the impression that for the casual user, much more needs to be known than actually does.

I don't know if it is reliable if you use the same program but there are programs in which this proprietary JAWS command is designed to work and those for which such provision hasn't been made. this is not difficult to do using the program itself. Different programs may have different ways of doing it. Since this is a never-ending and perennial problem among a lot of blind e-mail program users, it might be a good idea if specific instructions for specific programs are given by those who use the programs and know they are reliable.

Yes, using Jaws! Open the message you wish to respond to. Then press
Jaws-Key+Insert+R, the Sender's E-mail address will automatically be
Jaws-Key+Insert+placed
in the "TO" Field and you can start typing right away in the message body.
If you're REPLYING TO A SENDER off of a mailing list, be sure that the

There's one caveat: Be sure to check and make sure that the E-mail address
in the "TO" field DOES NOT contain additional extraneous characters; if it
does, your message will not go through and you'll get a bounce. In my
tests, the addition of extraneous characters do occur with Verizon, AOL,
Yahoo and a few others.

You might make a couple of Zoom presentations and put them on your web site to showcase your business. This statement of yours is short sighted and wrong! Wake up and smell the coffee good sir.

Hmm, sis, I thought you have a Braille notetaker? If yes, you should be
able to read the book. It comes both in Word and PDF formats.
It's not a book for me as it has NOTHING IN THERE ABOUT ANDROID and,
besides, it will be obsolete quickly 'cause Zoom is constantly tweaking
something.

Re: google voice number

 

In the Google voice app on the far right hand side at the bottom there is a voicemail tab that you will go into to check your voicemail. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions in the future,

Google Voice numbers are free! Besides Google Voice, there are apps
like 2nd Line, Sideline, Burner, TextNow, etc. that are similarly

usable should you seek to have more than one phone number.

Don’t forget the book by Jonathan Mozen, he is giving it away.

Most of the information is spot on, but you will find some subtle changes.

Vispero has an archived webinar on using zoom, and although it is geared for jaws users, it will teach all you need to know for the basic user who only wants to attend meetings, and it’s free.

I have no objection to such books but for a lot of users, who only want to attend meetings, don't want to host any, and probably don't even need an account, they don't need to know much.  Probably a five or ten minute small tutorial or perhaps the equivalent of three or four pages in a document would tell them all they need.

 

I should clarify that it may be that a separate five or ten minute tutorial and a separate text file of about the length I am estimating might be necessary for different ways of using the system, such as on a Windows computer, on a mobile phone, and perhaps there are other ways.  I haven't looked at the books being offered but if they are long or of moderate length and if they don't have a section in the beginning for the casual user, they may discourage people from using Zoom because they may get the impression that for the casual user, much more needs to be known than actually does.

I don't know if it is reliable if you use the same program but there are programs in which this proprietary JAWS command is designed to work and those for which such provision hasn't been made.  this is not difficult to do using the program itself.  Different programs may have different ways of doing it.  Since this is a never-ending and perennial problem among a lot of blind e-mail program users, it might be a good idea if specific instructions for specific programs are given by those who use the programs and know they are reliable.

Yes, using Jaws!  Open the message you wish to respond to.  Then press
Jaws-Key+Insert+R, the Sender's E-mail address will automatically be
Jaws-Key+Insert+placed
in the "TO" Field and you can start typing right away in the message body.
If you're REPLYING TO A SENDER off of a mailing list, be sure that the
mailing IS NOT SET to REPLY TO LIST only, else REPLYING TO SENDER WILL NOT
work. 

There's one caveat:  Be sure to check and make sure that the E-mail address
in the "TO" field DOES NOT contain additional extraneous characters; if it
does, your message will not go through and you'll get a bounce.  In my
tests, the addition of extraneous characters do occur with Verizon, AOL,
Yahoo and a few others.

Let's keep in mind if you want to second number, you have to pay for both of them. You don't get to have more than one number associated with your account. You have to pay for the second edition. Oh and I wasn't aware of the six months limit. That's also nice to know thanks.

While we have the option to adjust the same settings in iOS, unlike Google, iOS does not save your contacts into Google. So when you are expecting to hear the colors name you were here call from and then they either have to say their name or you have to go online and program it into the Google contacts. I have this feature disabled As you will never know if one is going to say their name or not.
