Talkback allows you to communicate with your contributors via a microphone input of your choice. This is useful for checking your guests are ready to go live, making them aware of any last minute changes or instructing them on being in the correct position within the frame.
Talkback to contributors can be achieved in multiple ways.
To talkback to an individual contributor before they have been placed in a call, click the icon next to a device or guest.
Within the contributor settings window, press View Preview.
A preview of the selected contributor will appear. To select the device you wish to use as a Talkback microphone, select it from the available devices in the Intercom drop down menu.
Next, to talkback, select the icon to unmute yourself. Once you have finished talking to your guest, click to mute talkback again.
To talkback to an individual guest that is already in a room, you can simply press TALKBACK from the main GUI.
Firstly though, you'll want to make sure your talkback microphone and headphones are configured. To do so, select Settings & Preferences from the main menu.
Under the audio tab, select the microphone and speakers you wish to use for Talkback from your available devices. Then click Save.
To activate Talkback for an individual guest, click the Talkback button underneath any guest in a room.
When the button is highlighted in green talkback is active and when it is grey, it is inactive.
This method allows you to communicate with one guest at a time, to communicate with an entire room you will need to activate talkback in another way.
