Zoom Meeting, scheduled by the Host, but the Host Does not Attend #zoom

 

This instruction sheet is my first draft, so I would appreciate any corrections/edits/etc. I have added the same document, both in Microsoft Word and Adobe pdf, hoping both come through...

Re: Zoom Tip - Chat #zoom

 

ANOTHER TIP: There is a setting where Chat saves automatically, when you end the meeting.

 Enter in Google:  www.zoom.us

 Log in with ID and Password

 Click on My Account in upper right corner

 On left menu, go to Settings:
In Meeting (Basic) it says:

Auto saving chats

Automatically save all in-meeting chats so that hosts do not need to manually save the text of the chat after the meeting starts.

Re: Breakout Rooms with Zoom integrated Captioning #ZoomCaptions

 

Alan: Thanks for this information. It seems to suggest that if you have a person assigned to caption, only one breakout room is captioned (probably the room that this person is in..?)
But if you have a 3rd Party captioning, it does not mention that restriction...I am thinking Ava for the 3rd Party..but I cannot envision how I would do this, for all the breakout rooms. I would need to use the API token and that would mean going into each breakout room to set Ava up...thoughts?

Has the host followed the setup requirements for Zoom captioning? See my reply to Wayne in the post below. Zoom is always changing and my suggestion to any administrator is to keep up to date on Zoom by reading the release notes for the updates.

I will be emailing Zoom also but does anyone know why Zoom Business would or would not have automatic captions?  I am advocating for a book club I belong to.

Thanks,

Make sure your facilitator with the Pro version of Zoom has the latest release. There are two areas where you need to enable Zoom captions - the Zoom account administration and also within the meeting. The area to look at within the account administration is "Meeting Advanced."

Carolyn Odio has a post on captioning within Zoom including step by step video and corresponding documents, Zoom has incorporated Captions.
Go to the beginning of the thread to find her contribution. It is on the second page.

Rich Osborne
 

Alan, I am puzzled by the comment, "Rich Osborne from North Bay prefers not to use MS applications " I regret somehow having given you this impression. I am an ardent user of Microsoft applications and used to be proficient in their use, although my skills have atrophied significantly. I have used free open-source software, like Linux and Libre Office, and maybe I spoke well about them since they are free, but I have discontinued their use primarily because the cost of Microsoft Office is not excessive and has superior functionality plus there are differences that can be problematic.

We also have a GWN account and use various elements of it, but not their document, spreadsheet, and presentation programs. If I remember correctly, Rich Osborne from North Bay prefers not to use MS applications and I think I received a document from Sara Oser that had a .odt extension (open document format like Libre Office.) You can ask them if they use GWN. I will email you their addresses.

Here is a sample of what the Zoom Live transcript captions look like. 


Re: Breakout Rooms with Zoom integrated Captioning #ZoomCaptions

Steve Wolfert
 

Wayne,

Any of the paid versions of Zoom now feature free captioning.  Make sure you or your facilitator have downloaded the latest Zoom update.  When you turn on Live Transcribe the captions should appear across the BOTTOM of the screen (white lettering against black background), and is very readable.  You can click the arrow next to "CC" on the bottom of the screen and adjust captioning settings (e..g., you can increase the size of the lettering).  The large white rectangular box you may be referring to (on the right side of the screen) is if you have clicked "show transcription" and you will see a scrolling record of the transcription; plus you can also save that transcription.

I hope this is helpful.

Folks,

I am using the free basic account for Zoom but have a facilitator that has the premium version.  We have tried the captions.  I am frustrated by what I see and maybe I and the premium holder are missing something.  For my captions what I see is a large white rectangular box.  Inside that box is a light dark rectangular box and inside that are the letters (captions) in black.  It is very hard to read.  Solutions?  I see nothing in Zoom help.

Thanks!

Hi Carolyn

This is all I find on the subject. I'm sure you are already familiar with it.

My experience is that Zoom Pro (paid Zoom) integrated Captions do not work inside the Zoom breakout rooms. Has that been your experience? I tried to confirm this info in the Zoom support page without success.

Thank you Alan for your reply about MailChimp and Microsoft 365 for Nonprofits. I assume you’re using Microsoft 365. I’m curious to hear if any chapters are using Google Workspace for Nonprofits?

P.S. We use five email addresses for our chapter (membership@..., info@, ALD@, etc.) and then forward those emails to the appropriate people in the chapter...

Email software for chapter #Email

Jaynie Kind, CA Peninsula Chapter
 

Hi All,

Our chapter used to use GoDaddy web services for our email. Then GoDaddy decided to get out of that business and transferred us to Outlook on the Web. This version of Outlook is extremely basic (who wants distribution lists with names in the list sorted by first name?!)

Our website is through HLAA-CA so we don’t have that to worry about, I don’t think.

We can keep our domain (hearinglosspen.org) from GoDaddy. 

We could either pay for a more robust version of Outlook (via TechSoup) or look at another email platform. Any suggestions? Warnings? Future considerations? Someday it might be nice to use MailChimp or something like that...

I’m curious what other chapters are using for their email...

Thanks,
Jaynie Kind
