We have a system that had to be set up for our monthly general meetings, requiring one member to come early, and we all have to use the wireless microphones when we speak. We use them like a talking stick. The hard of hearing people use headphones. It hasn’t been a completely smooth transition, and people forget at least once per meeting, or the speaker doesn’t know if the mike is on or off (we forget what the yellow light means), or the mike isn’t passed to the speaker, but we are improving and have accepted this as a small sacrifice to allow for participation.
