New Book On Zoom Now Available: GETTING STARTED WITH ZOOM MEETINGS: A GUIDE FOR JAWS, NVDA, AND IPHONE VOICEOVER USERS: $18.00
I've just been alerted about the following book. I have not purchased it and therefore know nothing about it beyond what is contained in the below description
but I wanted to pass this resource on to you. A link to purchase the book is below the description.

GETTING STARTED WITH ZOOM MEETINGS: A GUIDE FOR JAWS, NVDA, AND IPHONE VOICEOVER USERS (DIGITAL COPY)
$18.00

Getting Started With Zoom Meetings: A Guide for JAWS, NVDA, and iPhone VoiceOver Users

Description
Nearly overnight, the Zoom meeting platform has become an indispensable tool for work, school, and staying in touch with family and friends in these challenging
times. Getting Started With Zoom Meetings: A Guide for JAWS, NVDA, and iPhone VoiceOver Users by Heather Thomas, Accessibility Services Associate at The
Carroll Center for the Blind, is the first-ever comprehensive step-by-step text-based guide to Zoom for screen reader users.

Topics covered include: Initial setup on the PC and iPhone; the basics of participating in meetings; scheduling meetings and inviting participants; strategies
for hosting meetings and managing participants; and other useful features like sharing your screen, chatting, and making recordings. A list of important
keyboard shortcuts is also included.

For years to come,  Getting Started With Zoom Meetings: A Guide for JAWS, NVDA, and iPhone VoiceOver Users will serve as a valuable reference for blind
and visually impaired people wishing to participate in and host Zoom meetings in the workplace, at school, in blindness organizations, and in their local
communities.

The Carroll Center for the Blind is also offering remote and face-to-face Zoom instruction. For more information please contact our Director of Admissions.


*You will receive the book in both PDF and Word format with your purchase.

I have not read this book nor the one out by Jonathan Mosen, but I wonder how it's different.

Jonathan Mosen's book is in mp3 files. The book from the Carroll Center is
in text format. Obviously having a text file is much better when it comes to
searching, setting place markers, etc. HTH Norma

This one is in text format which a lot of folks have been looking for. It's
also 3 years newer and some things about zoom have changed.

Hi David, I hope this is coming to you privately rather than to the list,
Since I don't want to start a huge controversy.

I honestly would like to know, as a point of discussion and not argument,
what Difference exists between buying a printed book in America and sending it to a friend in the UK and doing something like that digitally?

Sorry about that! I used the Shift F10 and clicked on the Respond to Sender, but I guess it lied.

Since Control plus Shift R, also does not work for replying just to the sender, is there any way to do that, that you can share?

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 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.

It's actually insert shift R. The insert key and the jaws key are the same
thing.
It doesn't always work.

Hello Vicky:

There's an error on my part responding to your question about REPLYING TO
SENDER. I wrote as follows:

"Yes, using Jaws! Open the message you wish to respond to. Then press
Jaws-Key+Insert+R"

The correct keystroke is:

Jaws-Key+Shift+R

Apologies for any confusion; I did read my original response to yor question
before posting it, but I don't know why I didn't spot my own error right
away.

Beyond the foregoing, the remainder of my original response suffices!

Sincerely,
Olusegun

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.

For anyone who is an outlook user, here is another powerful function of the leasey product that works with jaws. While in an open message there is a leasey keystroke that copies the senders address to the clipboard. You can then start a new message and paste the address in the to field. It works every time.

Hi all,

In both Outlook and Sero-mail, if you hit ctrl-shift-r you get both the list address and the sender's address. What I do is simply leave the sender's address in the 'to' field and select what is in the CC field and delete it.

This doesn't always work. But it's worth a try.

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

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.

Well, this does have to do with the subjectline.  I would really be glad if they had this book in braille.  Pam.

That's true.  I often don't read subject lines but that means I sometimes send suggestions that may not be seen by more people.  I'll send a message with a different subject line.

A lot of people could be missing some discussion they could use because the subject has nothing to do with what you are discussing.

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.

It's actually insert shift R. The insert key and the jaws key are the same
thing.
It doesn't always work.

"Since Control plus Shift R, also does not work for replying just to the
sender, is there any way to do that, that you can share?"

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.
