Notice and Agenda for meeting Wed 12th Jan 2022 7pm

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 12th January 2022 at 7pm.

This meeting shall see a return of the simultaneous Gaelic <> English translation service.

The simultaneous translation will be provided thanks to Teangan Earra-Ghàidheal – a pioneering partnership project with CHARTS, the culture, heritage and arts network for Argyll and Isles.

Guidance on joining the meeting:

You can choose how you view the meeting using the app if joining via the internet – “Gallery view” shows you multiple participants

Please note that by default you will join the meeting muted (i.e. you will not be sending sound out to the rest of the participants) – please leave yourself muted unless you need to speak, and when invited to do so by the chair, and remember to re-mute afterwards. This is needed to ensure that the call is not made very difficult to follow by background noise from multiple people, which can be extremely disruptive to the call.

We suggest that members of the public not enable their camera, unless wishing to be seen when making a contribution to the meeting. This saves bandwidth and reduces the size of the recording for the minutes.

If joining on a PC, tablet or other device, please set your screen name to a recognisable form of your actual name so that other participants know who you are – this is required if you wish to participate via either speaking or using the text chat.

The mute and unmute button is in the lower left, and looks like a microphone, next to the button for switching your webcam on/off.

Using the simultaneous translation function:

If using the standard Zoom app on a PC, you should see a button for “Interpretation” – click on this, and then choose the language you would prefer to follow the meeting in – i.e. if you only have English, click that. If you wish to hear the Gaelic, choose that. If you are happy to follow the speakers in either language, you do not need to choose either.

On an iPad, this function can be found under a button in the top right of the app.

For more details see this page:

If you are using a telephone to dial in, please be aware that the simultaneous translation feature will not be available to you. Sorry! The mute and unmute command can be given by typing on your handset:


Requesting to speak:

If joining by computer, you can find a button to “Raise your hand” to ask to speak under the “Participants” menu, accessed by pressing the Participants button (looks like a human figure, in the middle of the bottom part of the window). You can also use the chat function to make a comment or to ask to speak on a point.

You can “raise your hand” to ask to speak if phoning in by using the code:
