I went to the chat room and when I hit control, I did not hear the chirp signifying I could talk. There were two people including me so it should have worked. Also, I kept hearing percentage values being spoken by the screen reader as if I was downloading something. Any ideas what I am doing wrong. I did install the plug in.

Hi Fellow subscribers,

I have been working with George Buys of Talking Communities to create a
chat room just for blind cool tech. The room will accommodate 25 people
at a time. It is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Larry will soon add a link on the blind cool tech web page that will
make it easy to enter the chat room. In the meantime, I am going to give
you a link in this email that will take you to the log in page for the
chat room. I would like to invite you to try it out.

Once you click on the below link, you will be taken to a page where you
can type in your name and press the log in button. If you already have
the talking communities software on your computer, you will be taken
directly in to the room. If you do not have the software, you will be
prompted to install it. This is quite fast and pretty automated. Once
the software is installed, you will be in the room.
You can press alt-u to place your focus on a list of current users in
the room. If you are the only one in there, only your name will be in
the list. You read the list with the up and down arrow keys. When you
want to talk, press and hold your control key. You will hear a little
blip sound when you are live  begin speaking. Keep the control key down
until you are finished talking and release it when done. Of course, you
will have to have a microphone connected to your computer before you can
be heard.

I will try to be around the room a good bit this weekend but will
obviously be in and out. I am viewing this as an experiment. We will all
have to learn together how best to make use of this room.

If you want to give it a try, here is the link.

I hope to see you there.

Robert Carter
