This will open up the Channels available to you.

This will give you access to Voice and Text Channels, which will show up on the menu on the left-hand side.
Scroll down until you find the Dragon’s Bay text and voice channels. Click on the Text channel to show the latest text chats in the main screen.

Update Settings and ‘Push to Talk’
Click on the cog icon at the bottom of the page to update your settings.
Here you will update the Voice & Video settings. Lochac servers require you to select a button to press when you want to speak, which is called “Push to Talk”.
You can set a shortcut aka keybind that you press when talking. Make this something easy, and remember that there is a slight delay between you pressing the button and your voice being registered.
You can test your mic here too to make sure the levels are appropriate.
Click the ‘ESC’ button to return to the text channel.
