Re: Zoom, iPhone or All In One Computer?

For more information on this if you wish to try your phone is to go to hadley.com and search for using Zoom on the type of phone.  If you have a IPhone then you could ask on another email list for information which is idevices@groups.io.  You can subscribe by sending an email to idevices+subscribe@groups.io.

You might find something satisfactory for fifteen or twenty dollars.  I haven't bought a microphone for years so I'm guessing.  But whatever the case, I would be very surprised if you need to spend over twenty-five or thirty dollars.

Hello NVDA Chat,
I have been trying to follow the example set by member, Brian, and
look up info before posting on NVDA Chat.
My reading about using Zoom tells me I need a computer microphone if
using either a desktop, laptop, or all-in-one PC. A decent one sells
for around $170 USD.
The second option is using the iPhone. But would any extra peripheries
be required if going that route?
As to ease of use, I found articles from the American Foundation for
the Blind, U.S., and
Henshaws Blog, Manchester, AU to be informative.

Using Zoom virtual meetings if you are visually impaired
Zoom is an app that allows people to have virtual meetings and stay
connected, as long as they have access to an internet connection.
That quote was suppose to include a link. I see it does not on
reading. It's from Henshaws Blog.
Third, is there a step-by-step tutorial or crash course available
online for using the iPhone and different meeting platforms?

At one time, there was a website with the words VoiceOver in its URL
that has apparently been phased out.
Thanks for helping me chart my direction here on where to go learn.

Best,
