Allowing Camera and Microphone Access
Your internet browser should prompt you to Allow camera and microphone access. This is a critical step! Otherwise, your provider will not be able to see or hear you in the session. If you have trouble allowing access, this guide can help.
When you first join the session, you will be in the Virtual Waiting Room.
While you are in the Waiting Room:
- Enter your Name you want the Provider to use.
- Check your Settings to ensure you have a strong internet connection and good video/audio connectivity.
- Click Join the Session blue button.
Note: If the there is no blue button, it means your Provider has not joined the Session. This will update as soon as they join. Once you click the button, you will be joining your Provider in the session.
