Is Wavello like Group Call?
Wavello is a VRS call with video that shows
the Deaf person, hearing person, and an interpreter. No additional callers can be added to the call.
Can anyone use Wavello?
Yes, both Deaf and hearing people can use this feature. Once in a VRS call, Deaf people use an ntouch product to initiate a Wavello call to a hearing person who has downloaded the Wavello app and registered their phone number.
Wavello Information for Hearing Family and Friends
Connecting to Google Meet audio through Sorenson Relay
- When you receive an invitation to a Google Meet, it will typically have a link. It may also have a phone number. There may also be a PIN code included if the meeting organizer wants one. If there is a phone number, as shown in the image below, you can use it to call Sorenson Relay.
- In your ntouch device, dial the phone number.
- Tell the interpreter that you are joining a Google Meet meeting. Give the interpreter the PIN if there is one next to the phone number.
NOTE: Telephone call-in options are only included if the meeting organizer has a Google Workspace account. If your invitation does not have a phone number listed, ask the meeting organizer if they can add it. At this time non-Workspace accounts cannot have phone numbers included.
Connecting to Google Meet video
- You can join the Google Meet meeting through an email invitation, meeting request, or your browser. If you are joining via the email invitation or meeting request, open the email or meeting and click on the link after “Join with Google Meet” (as shown in the image above) then jump to step 4 below. If joining through your browser, continue to step 2.
- Open meet.google.com in your browser (i.e., Firefox, Safari, etc.)
- If this is the first time you are joining a Google Meet, you will be asked to allow Google Meet to use your microphone and webcam. You may see the options “Allow” and “Block” or “Allow” and “Don’t Allow” depending on your browser. You may also be asked for both microphone and camera at the same time or separately depending n your browser. Remember that if you click “Block” or “Don’t Allow”, then Google Meet will not be able to use your microphone or camera. If you have already done this before, continue to step 5.
- You will see your self-view window. Make sure it is showing what you want it to show. When you are ready, click on the “Ask to join” button on to the right of your self-view window.
- You may see “Asking to join…You’ll join the call when someone lets you in” If you do, wait for the meeting host to let you in.
- You are now in the meeting.
