Necessary Software for Your Virtual Hearing
If you would like to appear virtually by video for your hearing, you will need to download the free Microsoft Teams app to your desktop or smartphone. The Microsoft Teams app will access your camera and your speaker on your smartphone or desktop to project both video and audio of you during your hearing. This method allows all participants in the hearing (ALJ, Department representatives, Assistant States' Attorneys, and you) to both see and hear each other.
Please note that if your desktop computer does not have a camera and microphone, Microsoft Teams will not work. You should instead use your smartphone. If you choose to appear by video, please download and test the software prior to your video hearing to ensure it is working correctly.
