iPad/iPhone SIG
Virtual Meeting

Friday, July 17, 2020, 2:00 pm

Notice from the Johnson County Library:
With safety at the forefront of our concerns, we have decided to extend the cancellation of meeting and study room bookings through January 1, 2021. Please continue to check our website and social media for the latest updates on Library services.

Use the virtual meeting procedure outlined below:

If you have a camera and speakers on your desktop computer or a laptop computer with a camera and speakers, you will find that using your PC or Mac computer will probably give you the best experience. To use your computer to conference into the meeting, follow the instructions that Joe Callison assembled. I will be happy to try to answer any questions you may have about these instructions. Although it mentions that Chrome is the preferred browser, we know that others have used Firefox without any problems.

When using the Chrome browser to access a video conference, you may see a message that your browser has blocked access to your camera or audio. Look at the icons at the top right area of your browser for an icon with a red X like the following:

Click on the icon and then click on the button to allow access and then click the Done button. If the red X does not disappear after a few seconds you may need to refresh your browser by clicking on the icon near the top left of your browser that looks like the following:

The settings for the site will be saved in your Chrome browser Privacy and security settings so you will not need to do this the next time you access the site.

If using a tablet (or phone), the “Free Conference Call” app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or the “FreeConferenceCall” app from the Google Play Store. I will set up my device at 1:45 pm so that you may begin to join at that time. This app allows me to see you, talk to you, show you the screen of my iPad or iPhone, and try to answer your questions. 

Installing and using it on an iPad or iPhone should be very similar to the Android instructions below. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Since it may be the first time you have tried using video conferencing, it may take a while to figure it out, and that is okay. You can call or text me if you are having trouble. We will spend some time just getting used to the new way of meeting and as always entertain questions.

The main goal of our special interest group (SIG) is to share our knowledge of all things iPhone and iPad

About the iPad/iPhone SIG

We found that in our classes we could not come close to answering all the questions that folks wanted answers to.   Soooo . . . we decided to have a loose format regular monthly meeting where you could bring your iPad or iPhone, and we would calmly go through all the questions that you might have.

The iPad should be easy to use and fun, and we plan for this SIG to embrace that idea. If you don’t own an iPad, but are interested to find out what it is all about, feel free to join us.
