With the latest version of Adobe Connect Pro we can now add ReadyTalk phone conferencing to online meetings without using an open microphone and speakerphone.
This is a case where telephones and VoIP converge.
There are three basic steps to make this happen:
- In Adobe Connect, select the preset audio profile for ReadyTalk
- Add to your meeting room's information that you want to use the audio profile
- In the meeting room, turn on the meeting audio by specifying the phone will be used
You will be telling the people in the meeting your ReadyTalk codes as usual if you want them to use their phones. This would be common for meetings where you want conversation rather than presentation. For one-to-many events like a town hall and some webinars, only the host/presenters would use the phones and the participants will use their computer speakers.
Either way, everyone will be able to hear everything regardless of the source. With the ReadyTalk conference as part of the Adobe Connect meeting, Connect will be able to record all of the meeting audio including those on the phone.
Here are the detailed instructions to set up ReadyTalk to work with Adobe Connect
