moderated Zoom

You did not mention if this was a laptop or desktop but if it is a desktop you may want to have an external mic or a headset with a mic. Most desktops do not come with a usable microphone for zoom.

Hi Leonard:

Then it's pretty easy then. The other email from Edward should be all you really need.

Best wishes,

Curtis Chong

I am not the host for the meeting. I am only going to be a participant.

Hello Leonard:

Boy. You really have been thrust into the middle of it. Zoom is very accessible nonvisually. But there is a bit of up front learning that can only be gained with experience. Are you hosting? Because if you are and have not set up a Zoom account, you will need to do that. The free accounts give you a maximum time in a meeting of 40 minutes. I myself have a Pro account which enables me to run meetings for two hours or more.

Good luck.

Best regards,

Curtis Chong

Hi Leonard,

Clicking the link to the meeting should cause the Zoom app to launch.

Once you’re in the meeting, alt+a mutes and unmutes you, Alt+v toggles on and off your camera, and alt+y raises and lowers your hand if you want to attract the attention of the host when you want to make a point - you may not need something that formal on a family gathering.

Cheers,

Ed
