We are living a very unique global situation right now, the rise of virtual meetings and calls has led to several people realizing just how hard it is to conduct business as usual from home. While having a regular weekly virtual meeting you decide to jump in and offer a new idea to the group, you write down your idea and share it with the group chat but everyone is too busy talking and no one is checking the chat! The person organizing the chat is not even paying attention to you pressing the raise my hand button, in a world where raising your voice to call for attention not being able to communicate that way can severely affect your performance and day to day life. A modulator that calls attention to your idea and making sure everyone has their chats up so you are included actively in the meeting can make a world of difference in this case.
