moderated Re: Zoom shortcut keys
True permission is not required but to just hold down the space bar to talk, could be considered as rude. When we had a guide dog conference call with 80 participants, the presenter learned very quickly that to just let people talk or ask questions, resulted in continuous talking over people. Thus, I would suggest put up your hand to chat and waiting for the host to let you answer is far more polite. IMHO.

Hi, Karen. In most meetings, permission to talk is not required. Pressing the Space Bar is just a quick way to briefly unmute. It's an alternate to ALT plus A to unmute and stay unmuted. The Space Bar just unmutes you as long as the Space Bar is held down.
Thanks. I take it that I would need to hold down the spacebar only if I’ve been given permission to talk?
Using Windows, its Alt + A.This is a toggle.
If you are muted upon entry to the room and recording has started or the host has started recording, you need to accept the host recording to be able to unmute yourself upon the host allowing you to unmute.
You can also unmute yourself by holding down the spacebar for the duration you are talking, this is like keying a microphone as a ham radio operator.
I was listening to a zoom meeting that was being recorded and had everyone muted. I noticed that there was a raise my hand button, however, I never could find the unmute button. Was it just not there? Or did I miss it? What is the shortcut key to toggle the mute button on and off?
