If you are on a computer or smartphone you should click on the link (in bold orange) just below “Join Zoom Meeting.” If you just want to call in, just dial one of the numbers listed at the bottom (long-distance or data rates may apply if you don’t choose a toll-free number).
If you click the link and you don’t have Zoom loaded on your computer, you will see:
When you click on “Run” (at the bottom) or “download & run Zoom” (in the midde), Zoom will download and you will see one of the following windows. The first will appear if the meeting has not started, or the second if it has started and you are in the waiting room:
When the host lets you in, then you can join the meeting:
At that point you will see the participant. When you move your cursor, various controls will appear. The ones you will likely need are circled. On different devices, the controls may be in other locations.
(In “Speaker View,” the speaker will be larger.)
I realize you may have a different device and your experience may be somewhat different from this. If you have questions or problems, just email me at email@example.com.
Be “seeing” you soon.
If you already have a Zoom account, you can sign into it to “Join Meeting.” You will need to input the Meeting ID and password, found in the email from Dave Melgaard. Dave has set up the General Meeting as recurring, so if you don’t have a new email from Dave, you can use a previous email from him.
For those members who may be hearing impaired, or just like to have Closed Captions on the screen, here are some tips below on setting up “Live Transcript/Closed Captions/Subtitles:”
Apple Computers and PCs
Open your Zoom meeting window. Access your Zoom Taskbar at the bottom of your screen (you may have to configure your Zoom screen to Full Screen [an option after you click on a tiny, nine-square icon and the word “View” in the screen upper, right-hand corner]). On the Taskbar (lower Zoom meeting window), look to the right for the icon, “CC Live Transcript.” Select that icon, then select “Show Subtitles.” After a little bit of a wait, closed captions should show in your Zoom meeting window. If you need the captions font enlarged, access your Zoom Settings, and select “Accessibility” (at the bottom of the list). That should show a slider for you to size the closed captions.
With your Zoom meeting window open, look in the upper, right-hand corner for “…More.” Select that, then scroll down to “Closed Captions” and toggle the command so it turns green. Wait a bit, and you should have captions across the bottom of your Zoom Screen. If you need the captions font enlarged, access your Zoom Settings, and select “Accessibility” (at the bottom of the list). That should show a slider for you to size the closed captions.
Seriously? Well, OK – (actually, they are legible). With your Zoom meeting window open, look in the lower, right-hand corner of the Taskbar for “…More.” Click on that, then scroll down to “Meeting Settings,” select, then toggle the “Closed Captions” command so it turns green. Select “Done,” wait a bit, and you should have captions across the bottom of your Zoom Screen. If you need the captions font enlarged, access your Zoom Settings, and select “Accessibility” (at the bottom of the list. That should show a slider for you to size the closed captions.
