Tips for Callers
The following information should help you enjoy your Tele-Class:
Please let everyone have a chance to participate by keeping your questions and responses relatively
brief and giving others airtime.

When the class is over, feel free to say goodbye to everyone and just hang up. Please don't stay on the
line after the call is over, as the telephone conferencing system needs to reset itself.

Enjoy the call, and listen for the gems that resonate as workable for you.

1. If you are using your speakerphone, press *1 to mute any ‘external’ noise heard by others on the
   call (remember if you wish to speak, you will need to press *1 again to unmute).

2. Do not put the call on hold. Many offices have music on hold and our call will be ‘interrupted’ by the
   music. If you have to leave the call, hang up and call back as soon as you can re-join our session.

3. If you have call-waiting, please disable it first by dialing *70. Wait for the dial tone.

4. Use a high quality phone connected directly to the wall. It’s best if it has a mute button. Portable
   phones or cell phones often cause static and other reception problems on the call.

5. If you're using a headset, make sure it's close to your mouth so everyone can hear you.

6. If you have a two-line phone or other phones in your room/office, turn off all ringers before calling
   in.

7. Don't breathe into the mouthpiece.

8. The system does not work well with two-way calling. Each person should call in separately to
   maintain the high quality of the teleconference line.

9. Say your name when you wish to speak and the leader will put you next in the queue.

10. Say your name every time you speak.
