Dear Eval TF,

Previously I sent some documentation of the W3C teleconference tools:
  - <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wai-evaltf/2011Aug/0011>
  - <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wai-evaltf/2011Sep/0013>

Here are some tips for using the basic teleconference tools:

When you join the phone call you will hear a beep, and Zakim will 
announce the phone line that just joined the call on the IRC channel.

The message from Zakim on the IRC channel reads:
	"+43.1.263aabb", or
	(or your name if your phone line has caller ID enabled)

It is best to join the IRC channel before you join the phone call so 
that you can see the phone line assigned to your call. Then use the 
following command to associate your IRC nickname with your phone line:
	"Zakim, ??P13 is me", or
	"Zakim, aabb is me"

Please mute whenever you are not speaking to avoid noise on the call:
	"Zakim, mute me"
	(and "Zakim, unmute me" to unmute your line)

If you want to speak then please raise your hand virtually:
	(and "q-" to get off the speaker queue again)

You can also add some text to help remind you what you wanted to say:
	"q+ to respond to the question", or
	"q+ to share previous experiences", etc

When the chair calls on you to speak then use this command which will 
remove you from the speaker queue and unmute you at the same time:
	"ack me"

Don't forget to mute yourself again once you are done speaking!
