Accessibility Hints

This page give some hints to make the most accessible possible the IGF's online participation:

  • Connecting to online participation: It is possible to automatically connect to the session's audio of the online participation platform when joining the meetings through Internet Connection (instead of joining by phone). In order to do so, please, download the app for your device (Play / Tunes). Open the application and, in the configuration menu, go to Audio, then Automatic Connection, and finally click on "Call via Internet": You will from now on automatically join the meetings' audio using your just configured smartphone or similar device.
  • Presenting in a session: If you are a panelist that needs to present something, you can share your presentation so onsite as online by making it available prior to the session to your organizer or online moderator. The online moderator will share it with the on-site person managing the online participation. During the session, your presentation will be shown then, onsite and online, and advanced according to your instructions.
  • Accessing and scrolling the live transcription: The live transcription of the session will appear in the bottom right panel of the screen. This panel will have a navigable header on top: the option at the right allows to stop the live scrolling, making it possible to navigate within the live transcription. The panels will be also re-orderable and re-sizable. You will be able to ask for help live to the meeting in case of need.
