    • DIAL-IN (Audio option 2) if your phone service does not accept incoming calls. Use this option only if the other two options do not work.
    • USING MICROPHONE (Audio option 3) if your computer has a fast (DSL or LAN) Internet connection, speakers, and a microphone. 
    • For best audio quality and to limit feedback, please use headphones and a headset mic if possible. You can ask questions via chat with this option.
    • “Listen only” is for listening to the presentation only. Join this way if you don't plan to ask questions via voice at the end of the presentation. You need only speakers or headphones to listen.
