Whiteboard Tools


Visual pointing enhances communication by allowing the operator to use the client's shared desktop as a whiteboard during ISL Light sessions. The operator can draw with a marker or use a pointer to mark important elements.

When the "Enable keyboard and mouse control" checkbox is unchecked in the Session Options before starting the session, the marker will be automatically selected at the beginning of the session.
