A: There are a number of things to check. First, check the audio source in your computer settings, so you are sure where the sound should be coming from. Next, check that your speakers are unmuted/turned on. If you are still experiencing problems, refresh your web browser.
If you are still experiencing technical difficulties, please use the chat function in the virtual platform to communicate with one of our assistants.
Q15. For other technical issues in the virtual conference, what should I do?
A: We strongly encourage all attendees to use a wired connection which generally provides a more consistent and improved visual experience, and either external speakers or a headset for better audio. Next, confirm that your internet signal is strong and stable by using a speed test like Internet Speed Test at Fast.com. You can also test your browser at https://zoom.us/test. To further improve things, you can close unnecessary applications to cut down on the number of demands being made on the internet connection.
