What equipment do I need to use Adobe Connect?

 All you need to start using Adobe Connect are the following:

  • Windows or Mac computer
  • Internet connection (broadband is best)
  • USB sticks for Internet not recommended because Internet speed depends on topography and environmental conditions, network congestion and other factors
  • Microphone and speakers (USB headset)
  • Webcam for conference use

 Most computing devices have built-in microphones and speakers, but you need to use a headset or handset. You can also make calls on your landline.
