Because ReadyTalk's audio services are fully integrated with web services, audio customers have free access to a set of web-based audio controls that allow you to actually see the participants and audio controls right on your computer screen or you can use your phone keypad to manage the call.

Using the Web to Manage Your Audio Call
Each feature above can be activated using your phone’s keypad. Alternately, the chairperson can manage the audio call using ReadyTalk web interface. The web interface also allows the chairperson to view total participants on the call as well as their phone numbers. There are many advantages to using ReadyTalk's integrated web-based audio controls to manage your audio:
- Better awareness of who has dialed in to your call before it's even begun
- Ability to dial out from an intuitive web-based interface or from the phone book that you've built
- Peace of mind that your call will go off without a hitch because you can see what's going on at any time
