Hello, my name is Ricky Enger, and today, we're going to join a Zoom meeting using our computer. So, we'll use our computer to get connected, and then, we'll go through a couple of really important things we need to know about for a typical Zoom meeting.
This workshop will be helpful if you're checking out the screen visually or if you're using a screen reader to speak the text, like I am. In fact, you'll hear the screen reader speak up from time to time, as we do things. The concepts we'll learn today will apply if you're using a Windows computer. If you're using a Mac, the general concepts are the same, but the keyboard shortcuts are a little different. So, be sure and check out the resources area for this workshop to grab those shortcuts.
If you want learn about joining a Zoom meeting by dialing in, or from an app on your smart phone, check out the other workshops in our Zoom series to get up to speed.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, We'd like to learn more about you, your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences, so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last, but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
