Push To Talk Mode Video Conferencing Equipment
- To enter Push to Talk Mode during an active Australian video conference, select the “Push to Talk” tab from the FaceConferencing taskbar.
- Select the check box next to “Enable Push to Talk” within the Push to Talk window.
- In Push to Talk, your microphone is automatically muted when you are NOT pressing the “Hold Down To Talk” button. Green indicates your audio is being transmitted, while red means it is not. Click & hold the “Hold Down to Talk” button when you want to transmit your audio (green) and let go when you are done speaking (red).
- To end Push to Talk Mode, deselect the check box next to “Enable Push to Talk” within the Push to Talk window or click the red “x” in the Push to Talk window to exit out of the Push to Talk function.
Note: Push to Talk is ideal when there is a lot of ambient background noise or when conferencing in loud or distracting environments.
This feature allows you to browse the Internet in unison with fellow conference Participants.
