Settings item has several options: enable microphone, streaming mode, screen resolution and regional settings.
COR menu: Settings
- Enable microphone - allows you to enable audio input in a streaming session
- Streaming mode provides the user to decide how to optimize COR. Best responsiveness provides most fluid experience (SPSS Bundle) and Best quality should be the option for software more demanding in graphical sense (CAD - Graphic Bundle).
- Screen resolution allows the user to select the size in which COR is displayed on the device. Since user can switch between different devices, recommended option is to match local display. This way COR will be optimized for the device user is on (especially convenient when working on computer and tablet for example).
- Regional settings provide different options for language, time zone and input method customization. Settings are saved for all future sessions.
Time zone — Determines the system time used during streaming and any applications you may use
Locale (also known as culture) — Determines how numbers, currency, time, and dates are displayed in the session. COR supports the following locales: Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai.
Input method — Determines the keystroke combinations that can be used to input characters in another language.
Additional option for better user experience is full screen (first item from the right in the menu).
User can end a session by clicking X on the application or logout from the dropdown list in the upper right corner.
