I’ve been a participant in MeetCoop sessions with another group, but I’m proposing that my current work switch from Zoom to MeetCoop and am looking for assistance before testing it out with decision-makers.
The main concern and goal of the organization is to have secure and accessible meeting spaces, and noticed BBB now offers a few features to lock viewers here: https://support.blindsidenetworks.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024409172-Lock-viewer-s-ability-to-use-their-mic-webcam-chat-shared-notes
As somewhat tech-knowledgeable, are these locking features available in Meet.Coop instances?
Ideally, the group would want to have sessions where only a single presenter is able to use camera and mic, shared documents are turned off, but the chat can be locked/unlocked.
Thanks in advance for any help. We’re looking to make a decision in sometime mid-to-late May and I’d like to be well-prepared before then.
Hey @opirgcarleton yes Meet.coop supports the locking features.
Once locked only the mod users can use those features. The lock options needs to be set each time the room is started.
@opirgcarleton is all clear to you, i.e. is there anything we can do to help you get well prepared to that internal decision?
You can see the Lock Viewers options in detail when you host a room, see pic below:
If you want to test the demo and check it our for yourself, please go to https://demo.meet.coop/
Hi @opirgcarleton, all clear, or is there anything we can do to help you with that?
That has been very helpful information! I’ve done a demo with another staff member and it’s very close to meeting our needs.
Other questions that arose were around translation rooms, in which a translator is speaking in a breakout room while listening to the audio in the main room. I believe this is possible with multiple windows open for the translator, who is listening to the main room and speaking to the breakout room.
Similarly, we would need closed captioning, which we know can either be typed manually by an interpreter, or an AI program like Otter.ai can be used. We will have to learn how to use that.
We would also like to know how to play a video presentation with audio. I haven’t looked into this question but I’m sure it’s been raised before.
Meet Coop seems to be a preferred choice, we just have a couple of more considerations among staff and board.
