Here is a step-by-step guide for using the “Click-to-Talk” feature:

1. Make sure you are logged in to your Skype account. If you don’t have one you can register here.

2. Log in to your BlogTalkRadio account and go to the Episode page of the show you want to participate in.

3. Click on the “Click to Talk” Logo shown below. (If you do not see this logo, try hitting control+f5)
