ParticipantsAs the previous this window is only available for the speaker. All participants that have dialled in are visible: either with a phone or with web-Phone. The name of a participant that speaks gets a green glow. Phone numbers can be edited for example into names.

Or have yourself called by Teminar. The telephony costs are charged to the organizer. He or she determines if this is allowed for each session.
...or your computer/tablet
Web-phone allows you to call with your computer or tablet. This is free for the participant and for the organizer. Read more about web-Phone
Or if you want to listen only: Web-Cast
