New user interface layout

Close Talk Control 3 Main Operator Panel

Previous versions relied heavily on popups and and separate windows for the different functions. This meant that it was quite easy to get lost and to get windows hidden behind each other.

The new user interface will be focused on keeping all functions within the same window and is now divided into three main parts as shown above.

Part 1 is the Conference Control Area. This is where the conference is controlled including start and stop. It also contains a conference duration counter. Part 2 is the Audio Control Area. Provides quick overview of the audio channel status. Part 3 is the Main Work Area. This is the main working area that contains all the software's most used functions divided into an easy-to-reach "folder" format.

Function folder layout with its own toolbars

The Agenda function now has expanded conference information including pre-specified voting matters and voting descriptions. Easily edit and control the flow of agenda points and show them to the participants.
