Support & Training


  • You need a microphone and speakers to participate in a S4B call or meeting. A webcam is needed to video chat.
  • Be sure your speakers are in front of your microphone or webcam. This will cut down any chance for feedback or echo for all participants. 
  • Join your meetings early to give yourself time to troubleshoot.
  • Use a wired connection whenever you can.
  • Find a quiet, well-lit place for your calls.
  • Find another S4B user nearby and get used to the functions.
  • Use large fonts and simple backgrounds for PowerPoint presentations.
  • Avoid presenting in the lower-right corner - that's where the audience may see their own camera in Picture-in-Picture views.
