Join your BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting, once in the meeting you will see a Join screen share button.

Can I launch and join BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice calls from a Mac computer?
Yes, the service is fully compatible with Mac operating systems.
Can I join a BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting from my mobile device?
Yes, you can join using a mobile web browser or the smartphone app, however the Dolby Voice audio separation and HD audio, and ability to control your meetings is only available with the BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice mobile app for iPhone or Android and requires a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection.
Can I use Firefox or Chrome with BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice?
Yes, all major browsers are supported.
I can't access the service?
Please re-check the instructions in your BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice account email. Contact the help desk if you have re-checked the instructions and are still having problems accessing.
Why doesn't my headset work when I try a self test?
Check your headset is plugged in and properly selected by the Dolby client. We recommend that you plug in your headset at least 30 seconds before you start your call in order for your computer to fully recognize your headset and show this as the active device when you join your conference.
What is the issue if I get the error: No meeting was found for the passcode?
There are two likely causes of this error, either you may have accidentally added a space into the passcode field, maybe as part of a cut and paste, or you may be using the wrong email address in the email field, the system will validate the passcode against the email address for chairpersons, please ensure you use the correct combination. The passcode must have no spaces or other characters, such as #, in the passcode field.
I appear to get a time lag on my call which makes it a little difficult to use, what can I do?
Wi-Fi solutions can introduce delay so it is recommended that you do not connect via Wi-Fi when you have important calls on the Dolby system. Corporate VPN can also sometimes introduce a slight delay that can be quickly improved by logging out of the VPN just before a BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting. This is a useful tip to share with your participants.
I get echo on some of my calls?
The two primary reasons why echo is introduced into a call is the use of speaker phones, we strongly recommend that speaker phones are not used for this service and the Dolby user interface has selected the PC microphone and not the microphone on the headset. If this happened, please select your headset under the Audio settings panel on the user interface.
The audio quality on my calls is variable, how do I improve this?
Audio quality can be affected by many things; Wi-Fi connections can introduce poor quality audio. If in doubt, please run a speed check on your computer by going to www.speedtest.net, you want to see at least 100kbs in both upstream and downstream.
The Dolby system will not recognize my headset automatically.
This may happen depending upon the type of headset and interaction with other UC programmes on your PC. Making your headset the default device for playback and recording will often fix this issue. For Windows, right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right of your screen, and select either recording devices or playback devices.
Can conference participants dial in from their mobile phone, landline or over the Internet (using Voice over IP (VoIP)) with the software client?
Yes, by selecting 'I will dial into the meeting using my own phone' in stage 2 of the joining process. Note that users joining this way will not get the high quality wideband spatial audio experience and their voice will be heard by others in a lower quality (narrowband).
Can I use my own headset with Dolby Voice?
Most USB Stereo headsets should work.
Can I use Dolby Voice with loudspeakers?
We recommend that loudspeakers are not used. The system is optimised for headset use. Please don't use it as a loudspeaking conference unit because it could degrade the experience for other people in the conference.

What is the minimum Internet connection speed required for BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice?

Are there any limitations on which networks or access technology I can use?
No, it should work over any network provided there is sufficient bandwidth. Note that a wired connection will generally perform better than Wi-Fi.
What if I still need help?
If you continue to experience issues, please contact the helpdesk.
