New Integrated Audio for StreamText.
Now you can get audio directly from the consumer through their web browser.
Cost: Please note there is an additional cost of $.03 per min for 2 participants and $.01 per min for additional participants. If you have two participants which is normal for a call you will see an additional charge of $.03/min. For calls that have more that 2 participants you will be charged $.01 cents. So for 3 participants the cost would be $.04 and 4 participants would be $.05 and so on.
Note: You must use the Chrome browser to get the best results however Safari and FF are also alternative browsers that should work. Currently IE and Edge do not support the audio connection.
Also the prerecorded audio that you hear on hold is loud currently we cannot adjust that so be careful not to set your amplification on high unil the call is picked up.
1. Schedule Event with audio enabled. First you need to enable the the audio feature when you schedule your event in ST
