Zoom offers a variety of audio options to accompany your video and web conferences.

Integrated Computer Audio – Recommended option

University Zoom meetings are best experienced via integrated computer audio. Users can connect using a built-in computer mic, peripheral computer headset/mic, or webcam.

Integrated Toll-based Dial-in

University Zoom meetings have a long-distance (U.S.) dial-in number for participants who cannot connect via integrated computer audio. Users are connected to the web/video conference and can hear other toll-based dial-in users and integrated computer audio users. Users dialing into the toll-based dial-in number may incur charges for long-distance dialing, depending on where they are calling from and their specific telephone service plan.

Standalone GlobalMeet Conference Bridge

University Zoom users who require a toll-free dial-in number to accompany their web/video conference can request a GlobalMeet Conference BridgeNOTE: The GlobalMeet bridge is a standalone audio solution that does not integrate with computers or other integrated audio options. All participants, including the host, must use the GlobalMeet bridge to ensure all participants can hear one another. This feature costs $0.015 per minute per user dialed in. Visit our teleconferencing page for additional information.

Integrated Toll-free Dial-in (under review)

The university is reviewing an integrated toll-free dial-in option to allow Zoom users to include a toll-free dial-in number for their meetings. The toll-free dial-in is joined with the integrated computer audio and toll-based dial-in users. NOTE: This feature is currently under review and unavailable for University Zoom users.
