System Requirements

To attend a hearing virtually, you must:

  • have a computer with a web cam, mobile device, or video conference system
  • have a reliable, high-speed Internet connection (at least 1 - 1.5 megabits/second)
  • disable or delay the sleep/standby mode on your computer or mobile device
    • Sleep/standby mode can usually be found in the device settings.
      You need to ensure your device stays active. This will allow you to appear "available" in the waiting room and to be called into your hearing.
