My camera and/or microphone is not working on my computer
Having a working camera and microphone are a required part of the eVisit experience. If you are having trouble with your camera and microphone, please review the following tips:
Step 1: First, be sure you are using one of two supported browsers, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
At this time, the use of Safari, Internet Explorer, Edge, and Opera browsers is not supported.
Step 2: Next, check to be sure your camera and microphone are not currently in use by another program.
Programs like Skype, FaceTime, or Snapchat can prevent eVisit from accessing the camera and microphone, so be sure they are closed before joining your visit.
Step 3: Finally, verify that camera and microphone access is enabled in your browser.
View the instructions listed below for verifying this setting in both Chrome and Firefox.
Chrome Browser Instructions
To verify that your Chrome browser has the necessary permissions enabled for your camera and microphone, follow these steps:
Step 1: In your browser’s address bar, click the padlock icon
Step 3: In the Permissions section, locate the Camera and Microphone settings
Step 4: In the menu on the right, verify that either Ask (default) or Allow is selected
If “Ask (default)” is selected, you will be prompted to allow access to the camera and/or microphone when joining your visit. If Allow is selected, access to your camera and microphone will be enabled by default, and you will not be prompted to grant access when joining your visit.
Step 5: Close the tab
Firefox Browser Instructions
