Add Timestamps to Your YouTube Videos #recordings #youtube

Alan Katsura, Moderator, CA Diablo Valley Chapter
 

Help your viewers. With many of our chapter meeting recordings running about 90 minutes, that takes a huge chunk of time out of a person's day. If you can break up your meeting into sections, viewers can see the video's portion that interests them. See the example below. Our chapter website may not interest you, but the HLAA website might. And, maybe you are not interested in the Q&A session. You have 15 minutes of video to view. Click on the timestamp, and the video player starts at that point. In the Video Details section for a particular video in YouTube Studio, it is simple to place the timestamps in the Description section as shown. Use the time format h:mm:ss. To access the Video Details section, from your Channel Content page, hover over the video and click on the pencil icon (details.)

Re: My chapter is considering a website - where do we start? #website

The volunteer that has been maintaining our website, www.hearingloss-mi.org, is retiring.  We are looking for someone that can maintain the site for us.  Can someone recommend a company that can handle routine maintenance?  Recently, someone pointed out that we are missing a SSL certificate.  I understand this may not be serious, but perhaps input from others will help clarify.  I believe we need to make sure plug-ins may need to be updated on a regular basis???  Any ideas on what we should expect to pay for any services?  The immediate need is to get someone to have access to the site so that our retiree can pass the baton.

I was able to access the California FB page from both the link in the top right on the HLAA-CA main page and I was able to access it from my own page as well.

Our State Association is conducting an audit with our chapters - making sure their chapter information is displayed on the HLAA and State websites correctly. While doing this, I noticed that our Facebook site is blocked with the message, "This content isn't available right now." Has anyone else run into this problem?

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

 

Today I tried something new with the "Host Key" meeting (as I will call it).

I set up the scheduled meeting and sent the meeting link to a participant. She entered the meeting (without me being present) and claimed the host key. She became the Host of the meeting. 

While she was the Host (of my meeting) I attended another Zoom meeting, without incident.

I was elated that this happened seamlessly! Please pass along your experiences with this situation.

I still have to test the following scenario:

What is the advantage of me, not attending my meeting? Well, it is the fact that the meeting that I scheduled operates with my default host settings...which, in my case, it may mean that they can have zoom captions (live transcript) since I have a Zoom Pro account.

Re: Automatic Captions in Breakout Rooms #ZoomCaptions #zoom

 

Wayne, I would love to know how operator/control person does it! Is it "outside the zoom client?" and in a separate window next to zoom? I assume it is inside the zoom since you mentioned you could see it on "live transcript". I am hoping for more information from you. thanks!

Re: Automatic Captions in Breakout Rooms #ZoomCaptions #zoom

Wayne Giese
 

Folks,

I only have the basic, but my church has the Zoom Pro.  The operator/control person is able to get the captions working in the break room.  It is the voice recognition and is fairly accurate.  I can not read the captions because they are greyed out in the captioning box.  I can however, open the live transcription and that works fine.

You most likely already know that the Zoom Pro, automatic captions (in zoom language called "Live Transcript) do not work in breakout rooms.

So I did some experimenting with Ava 3rd Party captions in the Zoom Breakout Rooms. I found out that Ava will function in a breakout room. But only one room at a time, whether it is in any breakout room or the main room. Ava listens to the participants in the zoom meeting, by joining by telephone. So the host can move "AVA-telephone participant" around, whether it is the main room or the breakout room. (When AVA changes rooms, the Host just has to copy/paste the API token into the AVA website. This is not hard to do once you know how to do it. And it can be done behind the scenes, unbeknownst to the participants.)

I just thought you all would like to know! (I do have a Ava Pro Light subscription by the way.) My guess is that any other 3rd Party Caption in Zoom would work the same way...but I have never tested any other 3rd Party App.

Re: Telecoil: Counter Loops and Costco #Telecoil

 

UPDATE:
Yes Cheri, you have a great point!

Actually, Costco should install them everywhere that they have a Hearing Aid Center in the US and inform us. And in this current communication I make a point of asking Costco to install the Counter Loops in all of the USA Costco Hearing Aid Centers, just like I did back in 2019 when I wrote the Costco CEO with the same request. But to date, they have not taken me up on that. I hope we can take full advantage of Counter Loop at Tumwater and Lacey Costcos. I attach the full correspondence as a pdf file, below. If any of you are in this area, PLEASE visit the Costco and make a point to ask for a telecoil demonstration on the Counter Loop ;)

I am putting an article in the March Panorama News announcing this and asking our (1,200) residents here to ASK to use the Counter Loop. The article that I submitted is attached below. To read about Costco, just go down to the section titled,
For those of you who have telecoil in your hearing Aids:

 

Christian has not given me the date that the Hearing Loops will be installed. Once he does, I will be posting it here...and hoping that if you are in the area, you can visit and ask a Hearing Specialist Rep for that demo!
