If you've enabled audio controls and you have clicked the Send Video option in the Assign Privileges window, your participants will have access to web camera controls and microphone controls. As you see in the Participant panel on the right side of the screen, I have an orange microphone icon that's showing me my microphone is currently available but is muted. I also have a camera icon that will start my video. So turn on my audio, I will click the Unmute button and a tone is heard to indicate that the audio has been turned on.
I can also click my Start my video button and my web camera will turn on. Participants can do the same thing by clicking on the camera icon to the right of their own names. As more participants turn their cameras on, more videos become available in the Participant panel at the top. If I'd like to show other participants who have joined the session, I can click the View all Participants in full-screen mode button. When I click that my screen changes to show the participants who have joined my session.
To return to the normal view, I will click the Exit full-screen mode button in the top right. In addition to the web camera controls, notice to the left of the participant's names, I can tell which participants have joined via Voice over IP or computer audio and which participants have joined on the telephone. In this case Agnes is using a headset, she is on Voice over IP and Greg is on the telephone. The green X tells me that both participants are currently muted.
It's important to give participants information about the Web camera and audio controls at the start of the session to be sure they aren't broadcasting audio and video unintentionally. When you set up the session room initially, you can set the participants to be muted as soon as they log in. The Web camera controls must be controlled individually by the participants. The presenter cannot control the web cameras for the participants. At this point I'll meet my audio and that's it.
