NOTE: Every PC/system is different! You can use this demo to play with all 3 options in Step 4. Find what works best for your system. You can log out and back in again more than once to see which option works for you!
JOB FAIR SOFTWARE TIPS:
- FLASH: Seems to work best and is most compatible with the system and is most efficient for typing in chats with most desktops we found. You maybe be prompted to update. Check if need update
- JAVA: Java does work fine for many systems. If you decide to use Java, simply check your java version prior to log-in. To see if Java is working on your system
- Java Log-in Error: “Your browser is NOT JAVA Enabled”:
- Simply, refresh and Choose ‘FLASH’
- SPECIAL NOTE: We recommend using a PC or laptop for the Job Fair. It maybe be difficult to navigate the chat rooms pages on smaller cell phone screens. MOBILE/HTML: Must use for Tablets or JAWS. Ipad/Iphone help
- *NEW UPDATE*: If for some reason JAVA or Flash are being blocked by your firewall and you are unable to update them, choose “Mobile/HTML“ to attend.
- NOTE: The Mobile version is a very basic form of the software. It will not have as many settings, but will allow you to attend.
OTHER SOFTWARE TIPS:
- ‘OPTIONS’ (top menu bar):
- Can edit sounds, notifications, color, etc.
Log out when done testing. Close browser.
- TO LOG OUT/EXIT:
- Click “ACTION” (top menu area) click “Log out/Exit”
- Do not stay logged into this chat. Other users will also be using this to test.
