If you already have the talking communities software on your computer, you will be taken directly in to the room. If you do not have the software, you will be prompted to install it. This is quite fast and pretty automated. Once the software is installed, you will be in the room.
You can press alt-u to place your focus on a list of current users in the room. If you are the only one in there, only your name will be in the list. You read the list with the up and down arrow keys.
When you want to talk, press and hold your control key. You will hear a little blip sound when you are live begin speaking. Keep the control key down until you are finished talking and release it when done. Of course, you will have to have a microphone connected to your computer before you can be heard.
