- People watching the seminar via livestream can only hear what is said into the microphone. During the Q&A session, the presenter should repeat any questions so the distance participants can hear them, too.
- Larger print on PowerPoint presentations make viewing easier for distance participants.
- Any pointer used in the presentation will not appear on the livestream, so verbal cues from the presenter are necessary.
