3.1 Link your audio connection and your Web connection

After you enter the audio portion of your web conference, you can enter an Identification code on your telephone keypad that is displayed on the screen. This code is unique to all participants. When you enter the unique Identification code provided onscreen, you will be identified by your web login name in one line within the Participant Window.

3.2 Mute/unmute your microphone

We ask each participant to put his microphone on mute and thus prevent background noises to disturb the meeting. Do not forget to unmute your microphone when you are speaking.

3.3 Make annotations

When displaying documents, all users can be authorized to make annotations. Please note that these annotations can only be saved as PDF documents afterwards.

3.4 Use the chat window

The chat window can be used by all participants to share URLs or information in writing. During the Working Group meetings the scribe will use the chat window to write down what every user has been saying.

3.5 Signalling that you want to speak

If you want to speak, please enter 'q+' in the chat window. The scribe and chair will monitor the chat window and see that you wish to speak. If you decide that you no longer wish to speak, just enter 'q-'.
