Speaker Questions2021-03-30T02:34:04-04:00

When should I connect to my event?

We suggest connecting approximately 15 minutes prior to your event going live, using the details provided. We’ll check your connection and audio levels once you’re connected as well as answer any last-minute questions you may have.

We also advise you to reduce the speaker volume of your phone, if your phone is near your computer. This is to prevent feedback from getting through the telephone.

Do I Need Any Specific Equipment?

All you need is a phone and your computer.  We suggest a landline telephone if possible. You may also want to have a printed copy of the slides should your internet connection drop out.

How can I tell the moderator how my name/firm’s name is pronounced?

We have a service where you can leave a recording of your name or your firm’s name.  All the details will be sent via email.

If you need any help, you can contact us anytime via email ([email protected]) or call our support team (646-844-0200).  You can also use the Live Chat service on our website.

How Do I Activate the Video Element?

Speakers can control their video once the AV Tech has granted access to the speaker. They can turn it on and off at any time. Because we run the audio via the conference number provided, your webcast audio will appear as if you are muted. This is normal. Do not adjust this unless prompted by our technician.

Click settings to change your camera and/or add a virtual background. Virtual backgrounds are not supported by all browsers and the ability to run these also depends on your computer’s performance.

You may refer to the below screenshots that provide a clearer outline of how to activate the video element.

There Are Audio/Visual Problems with My Event

If you are experiencing audio/visual problems during a live event, we recommend first refreshing your browser window.

In the event of an audio issue persisting, you can refer to your confirmation email for the dial-in number to join the webcast via phone (be sure to check your junk email too!).

If you are encountering persistent visual issues after refreshing, you can attempt to view the online portion of the webcast in another browser and/or using the BigMarker mobile app.

How Do I Get My Certificate of Attendance?

At the end of your live event, you will be sent a survey.  We designed it to be completed in less than three minutes.  You’ll need to enter the secret words into that survey as proof of attendance as state bars and boards require a completed record of attendance for everyone earning continuing education credits. Upon completion, you will receive your certificate via email within 24-48 hours.

If you have not received your survey, you can click the blue “Post Webcast Survey Link” button to be directed to that survey (as you can see in the screenshot below).  If you have any other questions, please call us on (+1) 646-844-0200 or email [email protected]

Does the Monthly or Annual Subscription Include CLE Processing?

The monthly and annual all-access pass subscription only covers access to all webcasts – live and on-demand. There is a minimal cost for Continuing Education credit and certificate of attendance processing for each event.

Is the Annual Pass Good for One Calendar Year Only?

Your annual pass will cover 12 months from the point of purchase, not just the calendar year.

Can I Register and Access Live and On-Demand Webcasts After My Subscription?

You can only access live and on-demand webcasts, as many times as you want, within your subscription period. You need to renew your subscription to continue access. A pop-up notification will appear on your device’s screen once you try to access webcasts beyond your subscription period.

Does the Annual Pass Include CPE Credit?

The annual pass covers registration for all of our events for the duration of the pass.  You only need to pay for the credits you need.
