How do I configure Audible and Visual Notifications?
     

Audible Notifications

Audible notifications are system messages sent by Web Conferencing to notify users when certain important events occur within the session. These notifications are presented as sounds.

 

In the Preference dialog, you can listen to what each notification sounds like as well as enable or disable the notifications. There are two built-in sets of notifications: Basic and All.

. Open the Preferences dialog in one of the following ways:

. From the Edit menu, select Preferences… (Windows & Linux)

. From the Web Conferencing menu, select Preferences (Mac OS X)

. Enter Ctrl+Comma (Windows & Linux)

. Enter Command-Comma (Mac OS X)

· In the left pane of the Preferences dialog, under General select Audible Notifications. The Audible Notifications preferences panel appears on the right side of the main Preferences dialog.

 

. To hear the sound used for a notification, click on its Preview icon in the right column of the panel.

. Enable and disable the notifications for the various events in the following ways.

. To create a custom set of notifications, click on the Enabled checkbox (middle column) associated with the desired individual events.

. Click on the Basic button at the bottom of the panel to select the Hand Raised Alarm, Recording in Progress, Start Recording, Stop Recording and Timer Alarm events. This is the default setting.

. Click on the All button at the bottom of the panel to select all events.

. Click on OK to save your preferences and close the Preferences dialog, Apply to save your preferences and leave the Preferences dialog open or Cancel to close the Preference dialog without saving any of your changes.

When you configure preferences, Web Conferencing will remember the settings each time you join another session on the same computer.

 

Visual Notifications

Visual notifications are system messages sent by Web Conferencing to alert users when certain important events occur within a session. These notifications are presented in a floating window. Multiple notifications get queued: the first one is displayed until it times out or you dismiss it (by clicking on the Dismiss button in the bottom right corner of the notification), then the next one is displayed, and so on. When there is more than one notification, the window will have a Dismiss All button beside the Dismiss button and display the number of notifications in the queue in the bottom left corner of the notification.

 

You can judge how long the message will remain open by looking at the Timeout Indicator. You either can dismiss a notification manually (by clicking on the Dismiss button) or wait for it to close itself automatically (when the Timeout Indicator runs its course).

 

 

In the Preference dialog, you can enable or disable the notifications. By default, all notifications are enabled.

. Open the Preferences dialog in one of the following ways:

. From the Edit menu, select Preferences… (Windows & Linux)

. From the Web Conferencing menu, select Preferences (Mac OS X)

. Enter Ctrl+Comma (Windows & Linux)

. Enter Command-Comma (Mac OS X)

· In the left pane of the Preferences dialog, select Visual Notifications under General. The Visual Notifications preferences panel appears on the right side of the main Preferences dialog.

 

 

. Enable and disable the notifications for the various events as desired by selecting/deselecting the check boxes in the Enabled column on the right side of the panel.

Note: The changes you make in the Visual Notifications Preferences panel will not affect what is displayed in the Event panel of the Activity Window.

. Click on OK to save your preferences and close the Preferences dialog, Apply to save your preferences and leave the Preferences dialog open or Cancel to close the Preference dialog without saving any of your changes.

 

When you configure preferences,Web Conferencing will remember the settings each time you join another session on the same computer.

To decrease the font size, do one of the following:

How do I prepare to use Jaws for my web conferencing session?

 If you will be using JAWS to navigate through the Web Conferencing interface, be sure to do the following:

  • Start JAWS before you log in to the session.

  • Verify that the Java Access Bridge is working.

  • Configure JAWS to read all access keys so the mnemonic keys are spoken aloud; other-wise, you won’t be able to identify them. This setting is found under the basic settings of JAWS.

It is advisable to enter the room early (before the session starts) so you can configure your interface to suit your particular needs. How early you can enter the room is set by the session creator. The default is 30 minutes but the session creator may change that.

  • For those using audio in your session, run the Audio Setup Wizard to ensure your microphone and speakers are set to suitable levels.
