Nearly overnight, the Zoom meeting platform has become an indispensable tool for work, school, and staying in touch with family and friends in these challenging times. Getting Started With Zoom Meetings: A Guide for JAWS, NVDA, and iPhone VoiceOver Users by Heather Thomas, Accessibility Services Associate at The Carroll Center for the Blind, is the first-ever comprehensive step-by-step text-based guide to Zoom for screen reader users.
Topics covered include: Initial setup on the PC and iPhone; the basics of participating in meetings; scheduling meetings and inviting participants; strategies for hosting meetings and managing participants; and other useful features like sharing your screen, chatting, and making recordings. A list of important keyboard shortcuts is also included.
For years to come, Getting Started With Zoom Meetings: A Guide for JAWS, NVDA, and iPhone VoiceOver Users will serve as a valuable reference for blind and visually impaired people wishing to participate in and host Zoom meetings in the workplace, at school, in blindness organizations, and in their local communities.
