      Yes! This was another problem that I noticed....

      In the recording, after I had assigned audio to an attendess and we were conversing, their responses were heard first and my questions afterwards!
      Talk about confusion.

      Plus, the attendee's voice was very loud, while mine sounded far away.

      I guess this would be a good place to announce that the webheads ten year
      anniversary recording has finally been processed by WiZiQ and is available
      at http://www.wiziq.com/public/session_details.aspx?detail=28810 or

      In listening to this recording I find very annoying the fact that sound is
      heard at different times by different people in a WiZiQ chat and comes out
      on the recording disjunct as well. In this recording there were some voice
      harmonies. I suppose it's amusing to hear two people singing and then a
      third person coming in a minute after the others had finished (though the
      third person was responding to what he was hearing at the time he was
      hearing it). In the recording there are many places where someone answers a
      question and a minute later someone else asks it.

      Elluminate on the other hand seems to produce fairly good recordings, and
      people in the conversation rarely note time lags in what they are hearing.

      I have no experience of losing artifacts uploaded to the presentation
