Before your meeting starts, you can choose to join the meeting with computer or phone audio.  For the research coach appointments, we recommend computer audio. However, if the computer audio is not working, the research coach appointment can be conducted via Zoom using a phone.  

Be sure to test the audio a few minutes before the meeting (or research coach appointment) is scheduled to start.
