Audio and Video Setup
When you first join a Collaborate session you will be prompted to set up your audio and video.
If you do not set up your audio and video when prompted, you can set up audio and video at any time in My Settings. To access your My Settings area, open the Collaborate Panel.
Click the My Settings button at the bottom of the page.
Audio will play over your computer's speakers or your headphones. As a best practice, we recommend using headphones for audio, as this will help to reduce background noise and echoes. The headphones that come with most cell phones will work nicely.
If your audio is not working correctly, you may use your phone for audio. To learn more, see Call Into a Session.
When prompted, choose the microphone you want to use. Select Yes - it's working to proceed.
Choose the camera you want to use. Collaborate tells you that you look great when it is receiving your video. Select Yes, it's working to proceed.
By default, your audio and video feeds are hidden and muted after you complete the setup. Select the microphone and camera icons to begin full meeting participation. Alternatively, with your keyboard, press Alt + M to turn your microphone on and off. Press Alt + C to turn your camera on and off.
