[BlindKid] Zoom Person Limit Question

I don't know about NOPBC, but listening to the rehab meeting a bit ago, they had planned for and paid for far more than a 100-participant meeting, but there was some glitch in the capacity allowance. It was resolved after a few minutes and there are now well over 200 in that meeting. I suspect that your son got in after the limit was reset to the proper level.

The answer is that glitches may occur, and please be patient. There has been an enormous amount of planning for this convention, but we've also never done this before. Each room will be moderated by an NFB staff member, and they'll work with the meeting organizers to get any glitches resolved as quickly as possible.

Happy NFB20 all!

Subject: [BlindKid] Zoom Person Limit Question

Good morning all,
I'm looking forward to today's meetings & the Conference in general.
At 7:00 or 7:01 am today, my son tried to Zoom into his morning Rebah & Educaton Meeting & though he paid & had signed he up ahead of time he was not allowed in due the *Zoom 100 person limit*. He was ultimately able to get in to listen via a dial-in phone number.
I have seen such Zoom meeting 100-person limit issues with other meetings.
*Is there going to be a Zoom Person Limit for the NOPBC Meetings? *For that more in-person feel, I'd personally prefer being able to see the presenter or panel etc.
If there is a limit per session, can you clarify the work-around?
