Be Seen and Heard

ReadyTalk recently released an enhancement to it's web based audio controls. Now for meetings of any size Chairpersons and Co-Presenters will have a visual queue for any audience member who is speaking. This feature brings more visibility into the audience of your web and audio, or audio only conferences.

With Active Speaker you can:


  • See who's audio line is making background noise and mute it

  • Find out who's hold music is playing for the whole call to hear

  • Have more effective collaborative audio conferences

  • Gain visibility into who's asking questions during your conferences


 

Who is it for?

Active Speaker is especially useful for those collaborative meetings you may be having with your team members. Active Speaker, coupled with Name and Number matching through the phonebook, creates a very efficient collaborative meeting. Set up name and number matching by clicking the phonebook icon in your audio conference controls (pictured below). Once open add the names and numbers of the colleagues you frequently  meet with. The next time they dial-in to your ReadyTalk conference their name will automatically be entered into the audio participant list. Now when you start your meeting your colleagues names will automatically show up and you will be able to see who is speaking from the start of your call without having to set anything up. Now anytime someone speaks up on your collaborative call you will know exactly who is speaking making note-taking, follow-up, and roll call much easier.
