Maybe I have technology issues and don't know how to use jabber. But once 
logged in, it should work...
I am logged in, and don' see any one. When everyone is soft, its more then 
users not using the mic properly and then the local audience wouldn't work 

>The remote participation is actually working fine now 
Beg to differ! I am sitting in Cape Town and can't say the same!

Vymala - can you see me in jabber?

As mentioned, this isn't new to this meeting!

Glad to report it is working now!

Dear SM,

As you can imagine, the volume coming from a person speaking into a 
microphone has a lot to do with the use of the microphone, and how near it 
is held to the mouth, as well as the microphone itself.

In addition, to maintain the language consistency in each stream, the 
interpretation service switches between room input and translated input as 
people on the floor change source language. This means that the input that 
gets streamed is constantly changing.

We’re working ongoing with the interpretation sound crew to normalise that 
as much as possible and also tweak the streams themselves, but sometimes a 
drop in volume or quality is short-lived and unavoidable.

I would highly recommend joining our jabber chat rooms and reporting to 
staff there for a quicker response time than mailing list emails.

When possible, we’ll make adjustments as needed.
