    Technology Requirements

    The General Assembly Team has provided a Technology Guide to attend this virtual GA.

    • Virtual participation requires high speed internet access and a desktop/laptop computer. Smartphones and tablets can be used as supplemental screens for streaming video, voting, or chatting, but they do not by themselves accommodate a full user experience. There will be opportunity in advance of General Assembly for you to test the offsite participation portal and ensure your ability to participate.
    • Virtual Participation Requirements: Internet connection that can support streaming video; up-to-date Android, iOS, Windows, or Mac devices; and an up-to-date version of Zoom.
    • Delegate Participation Requirements: A laptop or desktop computer is needed to fully participate as a delegate in the delegate platform. Tablets/Smartphones can be used as a ‘second’ screen to vote and chat but shouldn’t be used as your primary way of participating as a delegate. If you want to be seen during Zoom Sessions when speaking, you will also need a webcam. Headphones are recommended.
    • Accessibility: ASL interpretation is available for General Sessions, Major Worships, and Featured Speakers. Some live GA events are presented with live human captioning; some are presented with automated captioning. Automated captions captured during an event are edited before being posted with the event recording. The GA Accessibility Services volunteer team is available for assistance.
