Helpful Hints and Tutorials

    • Zoom concerns have been addressed and procedures will be modified as Zoom continues to update their software. The main security issue was with open meetings. When you register, it creates a unique link for a password protected session.
    • Use a computer. If possible, attend the meeting on a computer rather than via a smart phone or iPad. This will give you the best layout to view the captions as well as other meeting features.
  • Update Zoom. Make sure to upgrade to the latest version of Zoom.
  • Captions. HLAA Webinars are open or closed captioned. Subtitles will be visible at the bottom of the meeting zoom screen.
  • Check your time zone. This meeting will take place live at Noon ET, 11 a.m. CT, 10 a.m., MT and 9 a.m. PT. If you are in a different time zone, please adjust the time so you do not miss the meeting.
