elevated QR28n *When the video launches hover your mouse over the lower left-hand part of the video screen on the webpage … there you will see a small speaker with an X beside it. Click on the speaker to enable the sound (the X will disappear)

elevated QR28n * Click on the box on the far-right hand side of the video screen on the webpage (“full screen”) and the picture will fill your entire screen

elevated QR28n *The volume of the sound is controlled from the computer/device you are on. You may need to increase the volume on their computer / device to hear things properly.

elevated QR28n *A computer is the best way to watch the broadcast. Cell phones and iPad do work – marginally, but (especially) older models can sometimes have limited or outdated technology that doesn’t always manage the sizable data that comes in with both audio and video broadcasting. An old computer can also have these issues…

elevated QR28n Also – we are broadcasting this over the internet, a system that has seen an incredible increase in use given the pandemic challenges. Potential streaming delays, frozen frames and so on do happen on occasion and unfortunately, we have no control over these situations. Further there can be delays or challenges with the internet feed in any number of neighbourhoods at anytime. Again, we have no control over this. Fortunately, they have been minimal, but we wanted you to be aware.
