Do I need to have a microphone to ask questions during the webinar?
No. A microphone is not required because participants are muted and are only allowed to submit written questions during the webinar. You must have computer speakers or a headset properly connected.
Why can I see the PowerPoint but I can’t hear sound?
There are three common issues that prevent users from being able to hear the presentation:
- No headset or computer speakers/soundcard. You need computer speakers or a headset. A microphone is not required because participants are muted.
- Headset or speakers not connected properly. Make sure your audio is properly connected and not muted. To test, go to YouTube and make sure that you can listen to a video.
- Your computer has LiveMeeting “web client” installed and needs to have the “full client” software to use MS Live Meeting computer audio. Download and install the Microsoft Live Meeting Client as opposed to using the web-based client. To download, please click here and select "Run." If it already exists, please click “yes” you want to replace it.
I can’t download the full client software.
You need to download the full client software to listen to a DFEH webinar through your computer audio. Contact your IT administrator because you may need permission to download and install software on your computer or your administrator may need to make changes to your Department’s firewall. Explain that you need to download and install the “full client” software to attend the webinar. Your permissions are set by your IT administrator.
When I try to download the full client software, the error message, “Internet Explorer cannot download join from www.livemeeting.com” pops up.
You need to change your Internet Explorer settings. To resolve this issue, go to Tools-->Internet Options-->Choose the Advanced Tab-->Scroll down to the Security heading. Locate and uncheck the box marked Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed (in most cases, this will already be unchecked. If it is unchecked, CHECK IT, hit apply next to cancel, then UNCHECK it again, and hit apply again). Select OK and close all Internet Explorer browsers that are open.
I received my registration information by email but it did not include a conference call number. What is the conference call number?
There is no conference call number. DFEH webinars use computer audio so you must have computer speakers or a headset properly connected.
I can't find the confirmation email with the registration link. How can I get another email sent to me?
Please send an email to email@example.com with your full name and company. Please allow one business day to process your request.
