You will need to view the webcast on a device with a screen larger than a mobile phone, such as a tablet, laptop or desktop computer. You will either need to download the zoom app or download 'zoom for client meetings' from this link:
Download zoom

After downloading it try it out to see how it works. For the best sound quality you need to use either earplugs or headphones and use it in a quiet room without background noise. Below are two videos showing you how zoom works.
