You can also choose whether or not participants should be allowed audio recording during your meeting by checking either box; if they're not already registered with Zoom as attendees of meetings they're not allowed audio recording during without prior permission from all parties involved (this includes judges presiding over trials as well as attorneys representing parties in litigation).

If everything looks good then hit "Save Changes" at the bottom of this window and return back to step 7 where you'll now need to enter some basic details about who will be speaking during your meeting - Name(s), Email Address(es), Phone Number(s) - once again making sure both boxes nextto "Allow Audio Recording During This Meeting" are checked before hitting "Save Changes.
