During the webinar you can be invited to speak. In this case, you will see the corresponding message in your webinar room.

You can either decline or accept the invitation. If you press Yes, a popup window with the information on Adobe Flash Player installation will appear.

In the popup window, select your microphone and webcam in the corresponding tabs. After that, press the Close button.
