JAN Webcast Overview

JAN Webcast Overview


The Webcast series is distributed to users over the Internet using Adobe Acrobat Connect Professional, which is a Web conferencing system that allows you to view PowerPoint slides and an audio stream of the live presenters. To test your computer for compatibility, visit JAN's Webcast "lobby" as a "guest." If you can log in to see the pods and hear the music or read the captions, you will be able to log into any of JAN's live webcasts.

For answers to frequently asked questions related to the technology, visit: http://www.adobe.com/products/adobeconnect.html

Registrations are for a single computer, not a person. Any number of people may participate at that computer through the single Web link provided by the registration. However, one registration fee allows you one login, which includes the e-mail with which you register and a password given three to five business days prior to the scheduled event.

The JAN Webcasts are currently free for one login. One login is permitted per site. Contact JAN directly for more information.


All registrants will receive training materials for each session, which will be sent via e-mail three to five business days prior to the scheduled event. These materials will be in an accessible format and may include Microsoft Word and PowerPoint as well as Adobe PDF files. Alternative format (large print, computer file, Braille) is provided upon request.

Real-time captioning is available for every Webcast by Alternative Communication Services (ACS). Captioning is provided via your Web browser using the Flash plug-in. To see a demo and make sure it works on your computer, go to http://www.acscaptions.com/subpages/streamtext.asp
