Subject: [HLAATech] Favicon - That Little Image That Sits in Your Web Browser Tab #website #wordpress

 

There is a push from HLAA for brand consistency. My reasoning is a uniformed and professional appearance from chapters and state associations gains instant recognition and from that, credibility.  We all know what The Coca-Cola Company represents. A section of the HLAA Logo Use Guide, which I have linked below, covers how Walk4Hearing is branded. Those of you who have Walks coming up should review the Guide so your promotiion material follows HLAA guidelines.

You can view Ann Thomas's PowerPoint "Getting the Word Out: Promoting Chapter Identity & Creating Advertising Collateral".

There also is the HLAA Logo Use Guide which all webmasters should become familiar. Besides the proper use of logos, the guide produces information on font and  color recommendations.

This image  is an example of a favicon. I have attached the image file to this post if anyone wants to use it. It is a transparent png file. The size is larger than what is typically recommended but should resize itself. How you get it to appear depends on what you are using for your website builder. WordPress has multiple ways of adding a favicon. New sites can use the WordPress Customizer. Most themes allow you to add a favicon, and there always is a plugin in the WordPress Plugin Repository that will accomplish the task.

I apologized for the way this post is assembled - no flow at all, but the content is there.

Stay safe everyone

I'm still learning the quirks of this groups.io message board.

I just realized that we are unable to download the image from the attachment. Here is a link to the image in my OneDrive account that should allow you to download it.

The image available for download is in the png format. Unfortunately, it is a few pixels from being perfectly square but seems to display okay.

Grammarly for Nonprofits #software #Grammarly

Edited

In a previous post, I (I know, sometimes this message board seems to be about me) expressed my anxiety about posting messages composed with incorrect spelling and grammar. Think of the time spent on that important document, maybe asking for a grant, and having misspelled or incorrectly use words. How embarrassing. I have a deal for you. 

Grammarly for Nonprofits and NGOs

Once again, I have Ann Thomas to thank for this discovery. It is a group plan, so key members of your chapter can have access to it. The best feature is that it works within many web applications such as Group.io. I forgot to mention that Grammarly is providing free access to qualifying organizations. It checks for correctness, clarity, engagement, delivery, and style. 

For a little fun, the Grammarly Tone Detector displays an emoji   that lets you know how Grammarly perceives the content of your message .

Re: Google Meet iOS #meet #Google #ios

Hi Alan 
I agree that Google Meet is wonderful and free with ASR captioning. It does lac a bit with functionality or perhaps we all need more training, I’m not sure. For example I don’t believe it is easy , or possible, to have cohosts for virtual meetings, although I haven’t researched it.
As far as Apple goes and Google Meet, I believe if you have a Gmail email address it works for all Apple devices no matter the age. So perhaps that’s the workaround and also Google wanting a little influence! 
Be well 
Steve

If you are an Apple mobile device user (iPhone, iPad), you may have encountered problems accessing Google Meet if you have an older device. 

Google is nice enough to release Meet for all of us to use for free. Why is this important? Now there is access to a video conferencing platform that uses automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology for captioning without relying on add-ons. While not as full-featured as Zoom, it is simple to use. Yea, to Google for their efforts in making the world a little more accessible for people with hearing loss. Boo to Apple for limiting access to this technology to mobile devices with iOS 12.0 and newer. 

My neighbor was having problems connecting her iPad to a Meet invitation sent to her by her daughter-in-law. I figured I might be able to duplicate her issue and solve her problem. I have an iPad (Gen 4) with an iOS of 10.3.4. I created a Meet on my PC laptop and found out that:





  1. I knew there was a reason I was not too fond of Apple products


  2. the iPad will not connect to Meet through the browser - it referred me to the App Store to download the Google Meet app


  3. the Google Meet app requires iOS 12 or newer


  4. you cannot update 4th generation iPads to iOS 12 or newer






I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. After spending hundreds of dollars on the project, I found out at the completion that access is limited to - guess what - mobile devices with iOS 12 or newer. Everything worked fine throughout the development process until it went live on the server.  While testing locally, access wasn't an issue, only when the software was uploaded to its server. It was something I had never thought of doing, never done anything like it, thought it would be useful when completed, and learned a lot of lessons from that project. 




If you know this to be untrue, please post the workaround here.

Take care and stay safe

Re: Google Meet iOS #meet #Google #ios

Alan Katsura, Moderator, CA Diablo Valley Chapter
 

Steve is referring to a message I posted earlier that I was asked to modify the contents. The issue I encountered was an older iPad (iOS 10.3.4 Gen 4) accessing Google Meet. I tried accessing Meet through the browser and was blocked from accessing Meet with a message directing me to download the app. When I tried to download the app, I received another message stating that the app only works for mobile devices iOS 12 or newer. Research indicates that Apple does not allow one to update from iOS10 to 12.

For those who are unfamiliar with Google Meet, shortly after the pandemic gathered momentum, Google separated Meet from its business suite and made it available for free. It may be a coincident, but its release corressponded with an online petition created by Shari Eberts urging video conference platforms for the inclusion of captioning. Within a few days, the petition gathered over 40,000 signatures, and within weeks Google release Meet to everyone.

You do have to have a Google account to create a meeting. The nice thing about Meet is its simplicity compared to the feature-ladden Zoom and the inclusion of automatic speech recognition (ASR) captioning. You can receive captioning within the program without having to resort to additional software or devices. 

Take care, everyone, and stay safe

Zoom meetings and backup host question

Jaynie Kind, CA Peninsula Chapter
 

Hi All,

I was wondering how chapters are hosting their Zoom meetings. Currently I am hosting them using my Zoom Pro license. I feel uneasy...what if I can't start a meeting? Sick, hit by a bus, etc. Everyone would already have the meeting link and no host to start.

The "Alternate Host" only works for Business/Enterprise accounts. So no backup option there...

The only idea I had was to have a chapter email account and have Zoom Pro attached to that email (along with our AVA Pro license which I also have). We would have to be sure not to schedule meetings at the same time. 

Your thoughts?

Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Thanks for asking this question Jaynie. I’m in the same boat. Our chapter’s Zoom Pro license is in my name. I have wondered how to let someone else host a meeting without my having to open it up???  I have a conflict for one of our future meetings due to another commitment.  I can assign an alternate host once the meeting begins, but do I have to be the one to begin it?

Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Tony Hansen
 

My Zoom Pro account has advanced options that can be enabled to

 

  • “allow join before host”.
  • restricts those joining to ones who have authenticated (no guest zoom accounts).
  • designate alternative hosts.

 

Hope this helps.

You can give your account log in and password to another person if you want them to host a meeting from your account.  Since yours is a single user account, passing on your sign in info potentially violates that contract. However, in a webinar put on by Zoom, the instructor suggested doing exactly that.

You can always revise your account, under Profile, to change your email address to your chapter’s email account.

Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Jaynie Kind, CA Peninsula Chapter
 

I have Zoom Pro, you need Zoom Business to assign alternate hosts. I tried and it wouldn’t let me. 

I already had “Allow Join Before Host”. Carolyn Odio suggested disabling the “Waiting Room”. Since I have to have either “Waiting Room” enabled or a Passcode per Zoom security, I used a Passcode.

Then I scheduled a meeting. Carolyn was able to join the meeting although I wasn’t there, even before the time it was scheduled to start! She tried a bunch of functions: chat, mute/unmute, reactions, naming herself, etc. Then I joined/started the meeting. 

I’ve now scheduled a recurring meeting and have asked a few people in my chapter to see if they can join day or night.

Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Ann Thomas, HLAA Brand Ambassador
 

I highly recommend a trial dry run before a meeting. The Zoom Pro plan has co-hosting options. You can have a co-host admit people from the waiting room another one monitoring the chat and even a third one facilitating Q and A.
