How do I enable sound and video for a meeting?
All meetings take place on the platform so the use of your microphone is required along with your camera if you are happy to do so. When your browser asks to access the microphone and camera you will need to say yes and allow it access (camera and mic should be set to "allow").
Sound and video can be tested before you click on the "Join meeting" button by clicking on the respective "Test Video" and "Test Sound" buttons.
When you have joined a meeting, make sure your sound and video button is blue which means it is "on" and not grey as this means it is "off."
If you experience an issue with no sound during your meeting or if you did not allow your browser to access, go to the bar at the top of your window where you see the URL, click the padlock that you see on the right. This will pull up a pop-out window. You can then select "unlock" and give permission for your browser to use your camera and microphone.
