During their designated poster session each poster presenter will have a Zoom Room available to discuss their presentation. Screenshare will be available during this live presentation time. Prior to and after their designated poster time presenters will be able to use the text and video chat function to further discuss their presentation. Attendees will have already had the opportunity to view your poster PDF and the optional video as homework prior to the session, so they should be prepared with questions to ask you. More tips to help better prepare you for your upcoming poster session will be available soon.

Screen Recorders are able to record your webcam along with your recording. We Recommend these screen recorders will do an excellent job of recording your slide presentation:
Recording with TechSmith Snagit Application
If you would like to record your webcam along with your recording we only suggest doing so using the TechSmith Snagit application and following the instructions provided below. You may, of course, also use this application when recording your presentation without your webcam (more non-webcam application options will follow). When recording with QuickTime we instead suggest that you simply include a good photo or video of yourself as part of the first and last slides in your presentation. Your physical presence will be missed at the meeting. But if the audience can see your face at the beginning and at the end of your talk, and if the audio quality of the recording is good, then it will almost feel to them as if you were there for a short while. You can record these short videos using TechSmith Snagit.
Recording with Zoom
Setting up with Zoom:
Recording with Zoom:
If you plan to record a video of yourself presenting your poster, we highly recommend that you provide closed captions. Closed captions should be included directly on the recording video. Below are some ways that you can add closed captions to your slides. These are just suggestions and you are welcome to use other software.
Soundflower (voice recording to text)
Otter.ai (voice recording to text)
Amara Subtitle Editor (can also do translations)
Rev (Rev is a service that will caption your video for a small fee)
Please note that it is not possible to add closed captions directly in Keynote. If you plan to use Keynote, you will have to use one of the other options above to create your closed captions.
