How Adobe Connect worksOnce you are in you automatically go in as aparticipant with no rights at all. Your nameappears. You can’t hear anyone or do anythingexcept type in the chat box with whoever isthere. The host is the one who gives you rightsto do other things. I will mostly be your host.
This is what you’ll see when you enter the meeting 1You might be able to hear something as I see the audio part is green!. Your name appears 2 here and you can type in the chat. 3
When the host entersOnce I am in as host I can enable your audio(and video if we were going to use that) so thatyou can speak. I can also give you the right toshare a document with Screenshare. (By theway, because of our internet bandwidthproblem in South Africa we won’t be usingvideo.)
When I click on your namethis screen comes up and I enable all these things if necessary.
Speaking problems!HOWEVER For some reason Adobe has an echowith more than two people, so generally wehave to talk one at a time by handing over themicrophone. It is a hassle, I know! You willmostly not say anything until question time, butyou can ask questions via the chat box.
When the time comes for you to speak… When you click onmicrophone after this this block will open. Click on ‘allow’.
Handing over the microphoneWhen you are finished talking you say ‘Handingover the microphone to…’ and you mute yourmicrophone. This just makes it better to listen to– but is awkward. Every action has to beverbalised.
Click here to mute yourmicrophone AFER you have said ‘Handing over to…”
This is what you’ll see. Click on‘Mute my microphone’. That ishow it goes on throughout the conversation.
That’s enough for nowWell, hopefully that’s enough for now. See youat the webinar!
