moderated Re: how user friendly is zoom with jaws?

If anyone has a set of instructions or tips for inviting people to a Zoom meeting, hosting a Zoom meeting, etc., please post to the list.

I have been somewhat successful with these processes, based on what I've been able to figure out so far with a bit of trial and error, but a nice clear set of instructions would help.

I'm sure that I, and others, would benefit from this.

Zoom is so accessible it's like it's been made especially with blind users in mind. There is literally nothing I've not been able to work out how to do. I'm happy to give any tips.

You might want to update to Jaws 2020, but zoom is quite accessible.
There is a zoom training course and some scripts by Hartgen consulting
which are very useful.

I am a jaws18 user using the latest 2004 release of Win10. I have
never used zoom, so i am wondering how easy is it to use zoom with
jaws to join and be part of scheduled meetings? Any help with this
would be so very much appreciated. Much, much thanks in advance for
any possible help with this.

Kindest regards,

Hello, after using a personal meeting ID they're always using the
same link. If you schedule them under separate meeting nights which
the system creates for you then no. And those links are available as
long as you want them for. If you're using a meeting ID that you let
the system create for you. And if you want them to convene with the
same link, just scheduled a meeting for three hours. And I'm for sure
you'll be good to go.

I have three Zoom meetings with almost all the same people
tomorrow, one at 9:00, one at 10:00, and one at 11:00. Do I need
to create three separate meetings, or can we all reconvene thrice
at the same link?

How do
you spend it?
