Zoom

When logged on to the Zoom meeting, members are requested to aquaint themselves with both the "VIDEO" on/off and sound "MUTE" control buttons, which on a PC are located bottom left. These may both be in the "off" mode when you log on. You need to ensure that your "video" is turned on so that we can all see each other.

Except when you are speaking, please always engage your "MUTE" button to silentotherwise every slight sound you make will be heard by all. When you wish to speak, you can unmute by pressing the space bar.
