Joining information

Using Zoom

You can use Zoom through your computer, tablet or phone. If you plan on watching an entire session, we recommend you use a tablet or computer as the screens are so much larger.

Follow the link for the session.

If you do not have a Zoom app on your phone, tablet or computer, click on the link. This will take you straight to the session. If you’ve used Zoom before and loaded the app, open the app and type in the code in the blank box. This will also take you straight into the session.

If the session has not started, this will be clear on the screen. Don’t press anything. The session will start automatically.

The session chair will explain how each session works initially. S/he will also explain how to ask questions and how to use the Q&A button located at the bottom of the screen.

We are using a Webinar format. These are similar to lectures.  You will be able to see the panel / lecturer and any slides / presentations. You will not be able to see or hear anyone else listening and watching, nor will they be able to see or hear you. There will be an opportunity at the end of the talk / lecture to ask questions, and you should do this by clicking on the Q&A button at the bottom of the screen and typing your question.

Simultaneous translation

Simultaneous translation is available from Welsh to English.

  • If attendees want to hear the translation, they should click on the globe symbol / flag on the black control bar at the bottom of the screen, then choose ENGLISH (they will hear either an English-speaking participant or the interpreter’s English-language translation). Be aware that there is a delay of a few seconds when the interpretation starts so please pause before you speak.


  • All sessions will be recorded, and broadcast live simultaneously on the AM platform. Therefore, if anyone is having connection problems or problems with the simultaneous translation, they can follow the session on the Society’s channel on the AM platform (please remember, however, that you will not be able to ask questions through AM);


  • to ask a question, please use the Q&A button at the bottom of the Zoom screen. There you can either type their question in full or request to ask the question orally. The Zoom facilitators will then turn on their microphone, but not their camera.
  • ‘Chat’ will be enabled – but not to ask questions of the panelists.
  • the audience can ‘upvote’ questions, so that popular ones are prioritised.

Please do not hesitate to contact Sarah or Gruffydd if you have any further questions or queries.
