Video Chat on a Touchscreen System
Video Chat Screen

You can make or receive video calls on your touchscreen. Video chat is safe and easy-to-use. Anyone who wants to video chat with you needs to be added to your system by your caregivers. This keeps your video calls secure.

Friends and family can use Skype® on their computers to call you. Caregivers and medical professionals may use MediKall™ to call you. MediKall adds extra security to your calls with caregivers to keep your personal information private.

A small video camera is built into the front of your touchscreen, so there are no messy wires.

Making a Video Call

  1. Press the video chat button on your touchscreen.
    You will see a list of buttons with names of people. These are people you can video chat with. If a button is brightly colored, that person is available for a video chat. If a button is dull, that person is currently unavailable.
  2. Press a brightly colored button to call that person.
    If you press a dull colored button, you will receive a message saying that they are unavailable.
  3. You will hear a ringing tone.
    Just like a telephone call, the system will ring to let you know the call is being made. Also like a telephone, the person you are calling must answer. If the person you are calling does not answer, the call will end. Try again a little later.

Receiving a Video Call

  1. When someone calls you, your touchscreen will ring.
  2. Press the "Answer Button" on the screen to answer the call.

ːA video chat call will end when one of the parties presses the "Hang-Up" button.
