These are some of the recommendations we send to our event speakers. But we thought that now more and more of us are doing video calls these might be helpful to everyone!
Make sure you have the following:
A laptop or desktop with a webcam and mic and recent version of Chrome or Firefox.
If you don’t have a laptop or desktop, then you can join on your phone. But the experience is usually best on a laptop/desktop. On Android, we recommend the Chrome browser. On iOS, you must use Safari.
A strong internet connection. Just like any video calls, you must have a strong internet connection for it to work well. If possible, connect to your router with an ethernet cable instead of using WiFi.
A simple ‘lapel’ or ‘lavalier’ mic works well, plugs directly in to any headphone/mic socket, and can be picked up for less than €10.
