What are my audio options for the live session of Ask Tom Live?
Once you have joined the live session through your computer, you have two audio choices. By default, when you join the live session through your computer, you will be muted.
Your audio choices are provided in the Audio pane of your Control Panel (more information on the Control Panel is provided in the following pages).
1 – Telephone
It is recommended that you join the live session through your computer first, and then dial in using your telephone.
You must enter the access code that shows on your computer screen after logging in (it is the same access code that shows in your confirmation email).
After logging in, your PIN # will show on your screen. Enter the PIN # in your telephone key pad. The only way to get your PIN # is by logging in through your computer. If your PIN # is not entered, you will be able to listen to the live session but you will not be able to ask questions since the PIN # unlocks our ability to unmute you.
2 – Microphone & Speakers (VoIP)
If you choose this option, you will need speakers to listen to the live session and a microphone to ask your questions.
Please note that with this option, the audio quality can vary based on your audio software/hardware manufacturer as well as your operating system. The following best practices are recommended:
- For optimum sound quality, a headset is recommended, preferably a USB headset
- If a headset is not available, speakers are required to listen to the Webinar and a USB microphone to speak
- If using a microphone, it should be at least 1.5 feet away from any speakers built in or connected to your computer.
- The use of a Webcam microphone is not recommended.
- If you are unmuted by Tom, you may need to turn the volume down on your speakers to avoid echo.
Can I switch audio options during the live session?
You can switch between Telephone and Microphone & Speakers
Can I participate using my mobile device?
Yes! Visit www.GoToWebinar.com for available apps to participate using your mobile device.
Do I have to be at a computer to participate in the live session of Ask Tom Live?
Many mobile devices can be used (see above FAQ).
If a mobile device isn't an option for you, then you should be at a computer to participate in the live session so you can log into the live session using GoToWebinar. You can then choose your audio preference of telephone or your computer’s microphone & speakers. By logging in, you can ask Tom questions either by asking the question verbally or typing the question.
If a mobile device or computer are not options for you, you can still participate via telephone. Use the dial-in number and access code provided in your confirmation email. You will be able to listen to the live session, however, you will not be able to ask questions because we will not be able to unmute you. In order to unmute you, you must enter the PIN # provided after you log-in to the live session through your computer or mobile device.
Do I have to use both my computer and telephone to participate in the live session of Ask Tom Live?
No, you do not have to use both. If you select to use your computer’s microphone & speakers for your audio (which you can do after you log-in to the live session on your computer), then you do not need to use your telephone.
What if I can only participate by telephone?
If you are not able to be at a computer for the live session, you can still participate via telephone. Use the dial-in number and access code provided in your confirmation email.
You will be able to listen to the live session, however, you will not be able to ask questions because we will not be able to unmute you. In order to unmute you, you must enter the PIN # provided after you log-in to the live session through your computer.
If you know you will be participating by telephone only and would like to have Tom answer a question, please contact us ahead of time and arrangements can be made to have your question asked on your behalf during the live session.

How does the question and answer work during the live session of Ask Tom?
During the live session, there are 2 ways to ask your questions.
1 – Raise your hand.
Raise your hand using the raise your hand feature. Tom (or the facilitator) will select a person with their hand raised when it is time for the next question. That person will be unmuted so Tom can take the question live. This is Tom's favorite way to take questions so you may find that raising your hand gets a faster response than typing in your question. Be sure to raise your hand as soon as you have a question for Tom.
2 – Type in your question.
There is a question box where you can type in your question. Any typed questions not answered during the live session will be answered via private email from Tom (please allow 1 week for the response time) and posted in the Ask Tom Online Q & A Archive after any personal references are removed.
