On your VT Home Page

Locating new comments on a VoiceThread is as simple as following the yellow new-comment notifications. From the VT Home page, you’ll see a  yellow speech bubble icon next to any VoiceThread that contains new comments. If you click on the number inside that yellow notification, the VoiceThread will open and take you straight to the first new comment.

In the VoiceThread

When you open the VoiceThread and navigate to a specific slide, any new comments will be underlined in yellow on the VoiceThread timeline, and the commenter’s Identity image will be outlined in yellow. Click on that comment to play it.  As soon as you view or listen to it, the new-comment notification will disappear.
