Before you meet with your practitioner, you'll need to settle in and make sure your session will run smoothly. Click the Let's Get Ready button to begin the process.
Step 1: Webcam Check
Make sure your camera is working properly by making sure you can see yourself on the screen. This will be an opportunity for you to adjust your camera positioning and lighting for better quality. When you are done click the I'm ready! button to continue.
Step 2: Audio Check
Next, let's check that your audio output device - your speakers or your headset - is working well. To test your audio, click on the monster a few times to hear it make sounds. Watch the meter and listen to hear if the audio is too quiet, too loud, or just right. Adjust your speaker's or headphone's sound until it's comfortable and you can hear the monster clearly. When you're ready, click the I heard it! button.
Step 3: Mic Check
Finally, you'll need to make sure your mic (microphone) is working. To test your mic, click the "Test Microphone" button and speak into your computer's or headset's microphone, or your external microphone, whichever you have set up. You will see the monster reacting to your voice! Make sure the input level bar under the monster is moving as you talk. Adjust the mic (and your own voice's loudness!) so that your voice is not too quiet, or too loud for others to hear. Once you're happy with your adjustments, you can move on by clicking the "It heard me!" button.
Note: Throughout this process, if you need to change your hardware setup, you may have to do that directly from your computer's operating system, because your browser may not be able to directly adjust settings.
Step 4: Success!
Once you’ve completed your video and audio setup, you are ready to start your session! Your host (your Speech Therapist) will see that you're ready and will begin your session soon.
Note: You will need to set up your video and audio every time you want to join a session. This process should be easy and fun, so take a little time to enjoy it!
