It was a hot and humid day, and maybe it was just that. But…
Wouldn’t you expect DARK to signal MICS ON? As in ACTIVE? Especially when VOLUME is already indicated by a darker line? But it was DARK as in PRESS ME. Well, you never know until you try it, said Alice. Or was it the cat?
To add to the confusion, the LEFT MIC on the touch screen corresponded to the RIGHT MIC in room. (There were two microphones on a lectern and one hand held with cable.)
We needed to scribble things down to understand the set up; and there were two of us.
Twenty-four hours later I am willing to make amends. Maybe DARK was simply trying to appear GREY? As in INACTIVE? Next time, try harder, dear. There are a thousand shades of grey.
