Talking and Texting:
 
* In order to talk, press the control key and hold it down, begin to talk. When you are finished talking, continue to hold the control key down for a second, and then please let go of the control key so that others can talk.
 
Alternatively, you may have a (talk) button or can click on the microphone. You may need to release your talk button or microphone in order for others to talk.
 
(Only one person can talk at a time.)
 
 
* Using a headset is best. However, you can use a microphone and listen through your computer speakers.
 
 
Texting:
 
If you do not have a headset or microphone, or your headset or microphone seems not to be working, you may send text messages in the small space on the screen.
 
 
You can type your complete message on the screen, (the text wraps around), ending with the letters GA which means for others to (go ahead) and have their turn to speak or text. We will see the message and respond to you.
 
 
* Note: Please do not text while other people are speaking, and please do not speak while other people are texting.
 
 
We look forward to your participation.
