How to Use Microsoft Teams LIVE

When you click on the link it will prompt you to choose between downloading the Windows app or to watch on the web instead, choose to watch on the web instead (for the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge for your web browser - mobile phones are not recommended for viewing).


1. If you are trying to enter the meeting and receive a message telling you to sign in with a different account, you will need to sign-in as Anonymous.

2. If you are in the meeting and are experiencing any of the following issues, please close the web browser/Microsoft Teams and rejoin the meeting:

    • You see a black screen but are able to hear audio
    • You can see presenters but do not have audio
    • It says there is a ‘Poor connection”
    • If you still have problems, you can email and we will try to assist, please include a phone number so Tech help can contact you.

3. To ask questions in the meeting, please enter them into the Q&A by clicking the question mark bubble at the top of your screen.

4. You can visit Microsoft support for instructions on how to attend a live event and participate in the Q&A during the event:

Turn on Closed Captions

Microsoft Teams now has Closed Caption available for all meetings. You must turn on the live captions to utilize this feature. On the bottom right of the Teams Live meeting screen there are three tools - CC = closed caption, the setting gear wheel, and the arrows to expand the view to full screen. Click on the CC to turn on closed captioning.

Please visit Microsoft Support to learn how to use live captions in a Teams meeting.
