Be Prepared Before the Webinar Starts
Review our webinar tips for attendees and test Zoom prior to the day of the webinar.
During the Webinar: Tips for Attendees
- Accessing the presentation slides:
- The afternoon of the webinar, you will receive an email with the presentation slides and some reminders. Please check your junk mail folder if you do not see this email in your inbox. If you have trouble accessing the slides, contact us before the webinar begins.
- Sound and visuals: Our webinars begin promptly at 2pm ET*. When you join the webinar, you may see the slides but will not hear audio until start time. Most of our webinars do not display the presenter, only the slides.
- Audio issues and closed captions: If you have audio issues, please check your Zoom audio settings and your computer speakers. If you experience audio difficulties or would like to view supplementary text, you can display closed captions. Click “Closed Caption” in your Zoom meeting controls menu.
- Captions are also now offered through Ai-Live. Go to the Ai-Live website at the webinar start time and enter the session ID.
- Finding the Q&A box: Open the Q&A box through your Zoom menu. This is how you will submit content-related questions for the presenter. You will not see all questions asked by fellow attendees, but we will collate questions to address during the Q&A session.
- Printing or downloading the presentation slides: Open the slides via the URL provided. Use your browser controls to download or print (such as popup menu bar with download and print icons).
- For black and white or multiple slides per page: Use browser controls to print as PDF or to print via printer. Adjust settings as needed: color (e.g., black and white), pages per sheet (e.g., 6), scale (e.g., fit to paper), etc. Click the “print” button and follow any additional prompts.
- Completing the CE evaluation:
- During the webinar, we use bitly to simplify the URL for accessing the evaluation. For access via the bitly URL, open a new internet browser window and type the applicable URL in the search box at the top (just like you’d enter a web address). You can either start with bit.ly or you can start with https://bit.ly or http://bit.ly—whichever works best on your device—and then include the rest of the URL as instructed during the webinar.
- Email [email protected] with issues.
Technical issues and contacting National Register: Please email [email protected] or call 202-783-7663 for more in-depth, one-on-one troubleshooting if the tips outlined above do not fix your issue.
