Thanks for your reply George. I need additional clarity. How many monthly licenses does your Chapter purchase? Can someone schedule a meeting and another member start the meeting as host? In my case, I suffer frequent power outages. If I schedule the meeting and then be unable to host because of a power outage, who can assume the host role and do we need multiple licenses to accomplish this?

Re: Zoom has incorporated Captions #ZoomCaptions

Julie Olson HLAA in Wisconsin/Appleton
 

Thank you again Carolyn. I responded to your personal message prior to seeing this one.  Neckloops are wonderful. I actually bought 5 of them on eBay this summer for $11 each, and have given them to people who have never tried them to use.  I’ve never found the M/T feature helpful because of even a small bit of background noise. So, when I use the neckloop on my computer it brings great sound to me from others, but I can’t hear myself and tend to talk louder than I should.

 

I’m looking for a device that will allow me to hear and also to project. In other words something with a microphone connected to it.  Like the headphones that have a microphone that some people are using. It just has to be capable of being used with my CI processor and my HA. Not sure I would use telecoils if the ear muff would allow sound via my personal devices.

 

I was prepared to call Best Buy to purchase such a device if it exists. We have a Zoom social for our HLAA chapter this evening. Since I’ve been told that my internal computer mike doesn’t project well, I thought I’d try to remedy that.  The external mike I have cuts off sound coming in from others. That is an old Radio Shack mike. Works great for others to hear me, but I want to hear them too. J

 

Will figure this out. I appreciate everyone’s input.

Julie, I use a "telecoil" solution. Telecoil is like having "noise cancelling headphones built into my hearing aids". I have two hearing aid settings--one is noise cancelling and the other allows the background noise.

I use a ClearSounds CLA7v2 neckloop with a standard 25 foot audio cord. I plug it in to whatever device I need to hear -- computer, iPhone (newer iPhone needs a $5 adapter), TV, and any device that has a standard headphone jack. I use it for all computer zoom calls. I will send more info to your email. This is a non-bluetooth solution since 1) my TV does not have bluetooth and 2) bluetooth can have it's own connection problems. Cost: $30 for the neckloop (costs more now, if you can even find it); $11 for the audio cord; and telecoil installed in my hearing aids at no additional cost. Great cost & great sound both in and out.

The California Mid-Peninsula HLAA Chapter had a "Connections" meeting (once a month dealing with technology). We discussed this issue and here are additional solutions:

1) Here is Eliot's contribution:
"The device I described is the Sennheiser Model TR820.This model is several years old, so there may be a newer version available." Link to Amazon: Sennheiser

2) Here is a mic recommended by Jaynie: Blue Yeti Mic

I am sure others on this stream will  have more recommendations...

Re: Zoom has incorporated Captions #ZoomCaptions

Julie Olson HLAA in Wisconsin/Appleton
 

Carolyn, you said earlier that you use a headset with microphone on Zoom.  Can you please tell us what headset you use? I’ve been told that my audio sometimes fades out on Zoom. I have an old Radio Shack mike that works great, but when using it, I cannot hear as it cuts the incoming audio. Obviously not a soluteion. 

 

Looking at Best Buy to see what they have. Of course there are many options at variable prices.

 

I am bimodal/CI and HA. How do we find headset that will  work with our personal technology?  I don’t want to purchase the wrong thing and regret it.

 

I’m using either an older Dell Latitude laptop or a relatively new Lenevo Laptop. It’s the Lenovo that seems to be creating the difficult for others to hear me.

 

Know you said you were a techie, so figure you would have some answers.

 

Thank you.

Re: Zoom Pro Pricing #zoom

 

Hello Rich,

I think the key to whether to subscribe for non-profit rates through TechSoup or to subscribe at open market rates directly from Zoom.us is the following TechSoup statement:
Your organization will benefit from this offer most if you need at least two hosts or if you want to use add-ons.
For subscribing at open market rates from Zoom.us, there are 2 pricing for the Pro level:
  • Month-to-Month at ~$15/mth
  • Annually at ~$150/yr (an ~$30/yr savings over monthly)
  • The advantage for monthly is you can cancel anytime.
  • The other advantage is optionally add-ons are also month-to-month, meaning, for example, add/drop the larger 300 meetings upgrade only when needed for any given month.
  • On the annual plan, you will pay the add-on's pro-rated annual add-on fee for the remainder of the annual term.
Our chapter is on the month-to-month plan,

Does anyone know if it can be set to accept captions by a co-host?  I’m thinking not, so the best practice for the moment may be asking people who own Zoom Pro as hosts, regardless of who they are; business, friends, whomever; to go to their settings and include it. Once you set it, it stays on.   It also may be worth it in the future to find funds to upgrade to the program that allows more than one host.

 

I participated in a Zoom meeting of mentors for Mayo Clinic Connect yesterday. I had asked, in advance, for the host to set the captions  up.

Re: Zoom has incorporated Captions #ZoomCaptions

A few days ago, I shared this new Zoom development with a moderator for the Mayo Clinic Connect group. Today, when mentors from a variety of discussion groups came together, the captions were there and everyone was quite intrigued by them. I’m the only mentor with hearing loss, and these meetings have been a struggle for me.  I’ve managed by using a neckloop with my laptop, while teaching others a lot about hearing loss. Today’s 90 minute discussion meeting was a breeze! So pleased that Zoom now has this service. It’s gold!
