> Hello. So many of us are spending more time in our homes. Some of us may
> be working from home while others, though they may not currently be
> are using their technology even more. So many individuals and
> organizations are hosting conferences using the Zoom Cloud Meetings
> platform. Many people
> are receiving invitations to these conferences and are finding
> themselves using Zoom for the first time. While Zoom is very accessible
> with screen readers
> there's still a lot to learn and many of us have questions that we would
> like answers to.
> To that end I have created a mailing list for people to ask questions
> and to provide support on how to use the Zoom program.
> I currently have just two rules that I'd like all users to follow.
> 1. All messages should be relevant to Zoom. This can include Zoom on
> Windows, Mac, iOS or Android.
> 2. No harassment or rudeness of any kind will be tolerated.
> To join the group, send an email to
> zoom-users+subscribe at groups.io
> To send a message to the group the email address to use is
> zoom-users at groups.io
> Happy Zooming!
