Connecting to Zoom audio through Sorenson Relay

  1. When you receive an invitation to a Zoom meeting, it will typically have a phone number and Meeting ID. There may also be a passcode included if the meeting organizer wants one.
  2. In your ntouch® device, dial the phone number.
  3. Tell the interpreter that you are joining a Zoom meeting. Give the interpreter the Meeting ID (and passcode if there is one).

    NOTE: Telephone call-in options are not automatically included in Basic (free) accounts at this time. If your invitation does not have a phone number listed, the conference call may be hosted by a Basic account. Please contact Zoom at access@zoom.us to explain your situation and that you need a telephone call-in number for an interpreter.
