Log in as a guest with your last and first name and enter the Adobe Connect meeting room. You do not need a password.
How do I enable my microphone to speak in Adobe Connect?
By default, microphone privileges are disabled for participants (students). The host (instructor) must manually assign microphone rights. You can also use the status icon to 'raise your hand'. The instructor can then give you the microphone right. Once you have been given speaking rights, activate the microphone icon (must be green) before you start speaking.
What can I do if my headset does not work / is not recognized?
Some tips that may help you with this problem:
- Make sure you have connected the headset to the PC before opening the Adobe Connect room.
- Make sure your headset is turned on and recognized by your PC (verifiable on your PC under System Settings - Sounds - Playback and Recording).
- Close the Adobe Connect room and re-enter again.
- Do the Audio Setup Wizard in the Adobe Connect room (click the three dots in the upper right corner and then click Speaker/Microphone Setup).
