How do I get the audio?

You can join the audio part of any meeting by internet (VoIP) or mobile app.

You can also join by phone.

Call via internet

join.me allows you to call into an audio conference from your computer using free Voice over IP (VoIP) technology.

  1. Click the telephone.
  2. Under Call via by internet, click connect.Tip: If you are a participant, you may be prompted to download the join.me app to your Mac or PC before you can connect via internet.

Internet calling tips:

  • It's best to use a headset when joining via the internet – headsets pick up less background noise and help prevent echo and feedback.
  • You may want to turn off music, videos, small children, and other stuff that could interfere with your call.

How to Use the Meeting Room Controls

conference accessTip: If you cannot seem to connect via internet, you can always use the phone... it's all the same audio. ALSO: If you wish to SPEAK to the presenters, we'd PREFER that you be on the phone -- less troublesome audio there.   Tell us you'd like to speak, in chat, and we will enable you to unmute your line and begin speaking.

chatTip:    BE AWARE --  it is very easy to forget to send to just one person and accidentally send a chat to ALL!  Be careful what you type!


participantsTip:   You might want to change your name when you enter the meeting... remember, EVERYONE can see your name...  I recommend first names only... but it's up to you!

moreTip:   If you are asking a question or you are presenting, then you can get this kind of control. Just remember, the hosts/moderators are the ones that grant such control.
