Voice meeting conventions:

Please keep cross-talk to a minimum.  Interrupting comments by voice or chat can be very distracting to the speaker and listeners.

If people have trouble hearing you, you can switch from speaking to typing in the chat box.

 

IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT VOICE MEETINGS:

I don’t want people in my house to hear the meeting. You can use headphones to listen and use the chat box instead of speaking if there are people nearby who shouldn’t overhear.

I worry about remaining anonymous. You can remain completely anonymous if you wish by entering a false name, such as your middle name or first two initials.  We suggest not using any of your gamer names.

I have a slow internet connection.  If your connection is too slow, try lowering the quality setting.  In the Configure menu, choose Audio Wizard.  Press Next until the Quality & Notifications section and choose Low quality.

I’m nervous about speaking. You can try out a meeting and just listen or share by text. Mumble has a chat box for sharing by chat. No one will pressure you to talk if you’d rather not.
