Title (EN) DETERMINING WHEN PARTICIPANTS ON A CONFERENCE CALL ARE SPEAKING
(FR) DÉTERMINATION DU MOMENT OÙ LES PARTICIPANTS À UNE AUDIOCONFÉRENCE PARLENT
Abstract:
(EN) Examples disclosed herein provide the ability for a computing device to determine when a participant on a conference call is speaking. In one example method, while on the conference call utilizing a speakerphone, the computing device enables a microphone of the computing device belonging to the participant on the conference call to remain muted to the conference call but active to listen for the participant to speak on the conference call via the speakerphone. Upon the computing device determining when the participant is speaking on the conference call via the speakerphone, the computing device informs remote participants on the conference call that the participant is currently speaking.
(FR) Des exemples de l'invention permettent à un dispositif informatique de déterminer si un participant à une audioconférence téléphonique parle. Dans un procédé donné à titre d'exemple, pendant l'audioconférence utilisant un téléphone à haut-parleur, le dispositif informatique permet à un microphone du dispositif informatique du participant à l'audioconférence de rester en sourdine à l'audioconférence mais actif pour écouter le participant parler dans l'audioconférence par l'intermédiaire du téléphone à haut-parleur. Lorsque le dispositif informatique détermine que le participant parle dans l'audioconférence par l'intermédiaire du téléphone à haut-parleur, le dispositif informatique informe les participants distants à l'audioconférence que le participant est en train de parler.
