Participants can not share their video or audio by default. This privileges must be set by the host of the meeting. To ask for permission to take the floor, you can click the human icon with the hand raised displayed on the top bar. The drop-down menu next to this icon allows you to change your _Status_ or show your opinion about the topics that are being discussed.

Next to the microphone icon there is a drop-down menu to adjust some of its features. You can monitor the sound level in _Adjust Microphone Volume…_ to rise or limit the volume. If no audio bar is displayed, check that your microphone has been selected and that it works properly.
