Webcasting Skype Norms

  • Use a headset and external microphone
  • Test your skype audio beforehand by skyping ‘echo123’
  • Stop or pause your webcast before joining a skype conference
  • Don’t wander too far away from your mic, but be careful about breathing directly into it. You can also turn your mic off when not speaking – this will prevent breathing and typing noises from being shared with listeners.
  •  Be prepared to join a conversation in progress
  • Announce your name before speaking
  •  Use Skype text message to communicate with show hosts about sound issues
