The subject says it all.

Free audiobook, “Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a Blindness Perspective”

Meet Me Accessibly, a guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a blindness perspective

If you attend meetings online, you’ve probably heard of Zoom Cloud Meetings. They’re now the platform of choice for 50% of the Fortune 50 companies, and are used by many universities worldwide.

Zoom Cloud Meetings are just as popular with small businesses and community groups as well, offering a generous set of features absolutely free, and even more power for a small monthly fee.

If by chance you’ve not heard of Zoom Cloud Meetings, then you’re missing out on one of the most powerful online meeting solutions around. And you know what’s really cool? The accessibility of its apps and website are excellent. Bid those days of frustrating, inaccessible, fiddly collaboration and content sharing tools goodbye.

Meet Me Accessibly is a three-hour audiobook, written and narrated by Jonathan Mosen. It takes you from the basics of attending your first Zoom meeting, all the way to content sharing of your video and audio from a computer or iDevice.

Just some of the things Jonathan shows you in Meet Me Accessibly include:

  • Attending your first Zoom meeting
  • Working with and configuring the Windows client
  • Working with and configuring the iOS client
  • Creating compelling and effective online meetings of up to 100 participants for discussions or webinars
  • Using Zoom to have a sighted person take control of your computer, even a Mac user can control a Windows PC and vice versa
  • Running visually attractive presentations using PowerPoint, or by sharing the output of any application on your computer
  • Using the high-quality, low-latency audio capabilities of Zoom for one-on-one conversations
  • Holding global Internet and telephone conferences
  • Taking advantage of the exceptional audio for use in a podcast, including creating separate audio files for every participant for use in a multitrack editor such as Amadeus Pro or Reaper
  • Recording meetings and podcast interviews on your iPhone, thanks to the Zoom cloud recording capability
  • Recording top-quality tech demonstrations thanks to the easy-to-use ability for Zoom to capture your computer’s sound
  • Sharing the screen and audio from apps on your iDevice
  • Enabling stereo audio
  • Turning off Zoom’s audio processing for pure, top-quality sound
  • Scheduling meetings
  • Holding instant meetings
  • Using your personal meeting ID

As you can see, there’s so much that Zoom can do, you’ll wonder how you lived without it.

In Meet Me Accessibly, Jonathan uses JAWS for Windows, the world’s most used screen reader when working with Windows. When discussing Zoom’s mobile offerings, he uses an iPhone running VoiceOver, the screen reader built into all iOS products. But the user interface of Zoom adheres closely to accessibility standards, so even if you use a different platform or screen reader, you should still be able to glean much from the demonstrations and descriptions.

Download Meet Me Accessibly free

To help any blind person who may need to telecommute during the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made Meet Me Accessibly free to download. You may distribute it for download anywhere, as long as the files are not modified in any way.

When you download, you get a zip file with the book divided into 19 MP3 files to make it easy to get to the sections you want. An included M3U playlist allows you to easily play the book from beginning to end. We’ve taken care to number the files sequentially, so the book imports beautifully into Voice Dream Reader on an iDevice.

Download Meet Me Accessibly free.

Free JAWS scripts

Hartgen Consultancy have produced free JAWS scripts which enhance the Zoom Cloud Meeting experience even further. Download the free JAWS scripts.

We wish you health, safety, and very frequently-washed hands during these challenging times.

I’m not sure just what the computer is doing or not doing.  I think you said that Narrator crashes.  This may not solve the problem, but you can undo restore points.  I don’t think it always works properly but if the machine is going to have to be reset otherwise, you may want to try it.  You may want to wait for other suggestions.

It looks like there is a driver failure in the wireless card.  Any solution as to how this can be fixed?  Thanks.

Thankfully, my wife will be able to look at it.  I’ve had this laptop for several years.  So, not too devestated that it’s possibly bit the big one.  I use it a lot.

Hey Gene,

I thought about that.  Can you remind me exactly how to get to the restore points?  Thanks.

I just got a message on my laptop which is running Windows 10 that I can’t connect to the Internet.

It looks like there is a driver failure in the wireless card.  Any solution as to how this can be fixed?  Thanks.

Free audiobook, “Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a Blindness Perspective” | Mosen Consulting Tutorials

The subject says it all.

Free audiobook, “Meet Me Accessibly – A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a Blindness Perspective”

Meet Me Accessibly, a guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings from a blindness perspective

If you attend meetings online, you’ve probably heard of Zoom Cloud Meetings. They’re now the platform of choice for 50% of the Fortune 50 companies, and are used by many universities worldwide.

Zoom Cloud Meetings are just as popular with small businesses and community groups as well, offering a generous set of features absolutely free, and even more power for a small monthly fee.

If by chance you’ve not heard of Zoom Cloud Meetings, then you’re missing out on one of the most powerful online meeting solutions around. And you know what’s really cool? The accessibility of its apps and website are excellent. Bid those days of frustrating, inaccessible, fiddly collaboration and content sharing tools goodbye.

Meet Me Accessibly is a three-hour audiobook, written and narrated by Jonathan Mosen. It takes you from the basics of attending your first Zoom meeting, all the way to content sharing of your video and audio from a computer or iDevice.

Just some of the things Jonathan shows you in Meet Me Accessibly include:

  • Attending your first Zoom meeting
  • Working with and configuring the Windows client
  • Working with and configuring the iOS client
  • Creating compelling and effective online meetings of up to 100 participants for discussions or webinars
  • Using Zoom to have a sighted person take control of your computer, even a Mac user can control a Windows PC and vice versa
  • Running visually attractive presentations using PowerPoint, or by sharing the output of any application on your computer
  • Using the high-quality, low-latency audio capabilities of Zoom for one-on-one conversations
  • Holding global Internet and telephone conferences
  • Taking advantage of the exceptional audio for use in a podcast, including creating separate audio files for every participant for use in a multitrack editor such as Amadeus Pro or Reaper
  • Recording meetings and podcast interviews on your iPhone, thanks to the Zoom cloud recording capability
  • Recording top-quality tech demonstrations thanks to the easy-to-use ability for Zoom to capture your computer’s sound
  • Sharing the screen and audio from apps on your iDevice
  • Enabling stereo audio
  • Turning off Zoom’s audio processing for pure, top-quality sound
  • Scheduling meetings
  • Holding instant meetings
  • Using your personal meeting ID

As you can see, there’s so much that Zoom can do, you’ll wonder how you lived without it.

In Meet Me Accessibly, Jonathan uses JAWS for Windows, the world’s most used screen reader when working with Windows. When discussing Zoom’s mobile offerings, he uses an iPhone running VoiceOver, the screen reader built into all iOS products. But the user interface of Zoom adheres closely to accessibility standards, so even if you use a different platform or screen reader, you should still be able to glean much from the demonstrations and descriptions.

Download Meet Me Accessibly free

To help any blind person who may need to telecommute during the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made Meet Me Accessibly free to download. You may distribute it for download anywhere, as long as the files are not modified in any way.

When you download, you get a zip file with the book divided into 19 MP3 files to make it easy to get to the sections you want. An included M3U playlist allows you to easily play the book from beginning to end. We’ve taken care to number the files sequentially, so the book imports beautifully into Voice Dream Reader on an iDevice.

Download Meet Me Accessibly free.

Free JAWS scripts

Hartgen Consultancy have produced free JAWS scripts which enhance the Zoom Cloud Meeting experience even further. Download the free JAWS scripts.

We wish you health, safety, and very frequently-washed hands during these challenging times.

Thank you Laz. I'll try the command line way first. I'm just glad that I probably didn't get a bad SD card.

The Sansa clip Zip will only recognize microSD cards formatted as FAT32. The only choices you have to format such a card is to either brush up on old DOS commands for formatting, or download a utility that does so on Windows.

Friday Night Tech Workshop: JAWS, Just Because. Providing Help for JAWS-specific Questions. March 20, 8:00 PM, Eastern Time

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many of us to spend more time at home. Some of us are now working from home. Some of us may be staying home to stay safe. Others may be at home in order to self-isolate or quarantine. Even before all of this began there have been many opportunities for online training using meeting platforms such as Zoom. Now that more of us are forced to stay in our homes the opportunities for remote training and assistance will likely increase.

A couple of weeks ago I attended my first Ibug conference where participants are encouraged to ask questions and to provide support for one another with their iOS devices. I really liked the format of the conference but I wanted to see a similar opportunity covering topics from a Windows perspective.

I decided that I’d like to host such a conference and this will likely be the first in a series of free, online tech workshops, assuming there is enough interest in such a project.

The first of these workshops is titled, “JAWS, Just Because” and is scheduled for Friday, March 20 at 8:00 PM Eastern time. This conference will allow users of the JAWS screen reader to both ask questions as well as to provide answers to those who use the JAWS screen reader. No question is too basic or too esoteric and it should be stressed that there is no such thing as a stupid question.

For this conference I’m looking for two types of participants. First, anyone with a question regarding JAWS is, of course, welcome. Second, I’m hoping that those who are knowledgeable in the use of JAWS will also consider participating to share knowledge. Due to time constraints we won’t have time to provide lengthy support or to tandem into a user’s machine. Questions which require this type of intervention would best be addressed by Vispero’s technical support.

In order to keep the conference running smoothly I am going to adopt a similar policy which has been successfully used by iBug. Users who wish to ask a question or to provide a response should say their name, as in, “This is John.” At that point please wait to be acknowledged by the host, as in, “Go ahead, John.”

I have some other ideas for similar workshops but would like to hear some of yours so that I can determine the needs that you have as well as the level of interest. With many of us working from home are there specific applications or programs that you might want some assistance with? Programs that come to mind are Slack, Teams, etc. Would there be interest in similar workshops for NVDA users?

I would also like to invite other assistive technology trainers to write to me privately if you’re interested in assisting with any of these workshops. Many of you may have some ideas which I haven’t thought of and you surely have expertise with topics which I do not. I am unable to provide any type of compensation for any assistance you may choose to provide but the point of these workshops is to provide free assistance to those who may be spending more time at home doing work or completing other tasks. This can be a stressful time for many of us. Many kind and patient people assisted me when I was first learning about assistive technology and I just want to pay it forward and give something back to the blindness community, particularly during this time when the need for some tech help may be even greater

Here is the relevant information about the upcoming conference.
