Technology roadblock overcome

I was asked to be the voting delegate to an international convention by the local chapter of an organization I belonged to. Because of the pandemic, the convention would be a virtual gathering. I diligently studied the instructions I was sent on how to vote and watched an instructional webinar, but I was unsuccessful in the practice sessions. It was exceedingly frustrating and time consuming. 

I put the matter aside temporarily, as I was busy preparing to begin a term as First Reader for my branch Church of Christ, Scientist. Then, on the night before the convention, I rewatched the instructional webinar. Again I failed to be able to record my vote on the sample ballot.

Going round and round in my thinking was criticism of the young woman in the video who was doing the teaching. She spoke very fast in a high-pitched voice, and I frequently couldn’t understand her words. She was obviously very knowledgeable about computers and the program to be used, but I felt that she didn’t know how to convey this knowledge clearly. The only thing I remembered from the 45-minute webinar was her saying that one must “toggle between the two screens.” I didn’t know what that meant.
