You should see the green bar bounce as you speak in the microphone; the lower speaker portion can be tested by clicking on the Test button that will play back simple tones so you can verify you are ready for your hearing (no web cam video will be transferred throughout the hearing process only screen sharing of prior submitted evidence):
