How to Set Mute on Conference Callers

I would like to host a conference and let people call in and listen. I want to put their phones on mute so they don’t disturb the conference. How can I configure Asterisk for this purpose?
Thanks for your help

if your requirement is to do announcements you can use Page application of asterisk.

Also you can use meetme console command to mute participants.

Hi to do this, you have to have 2 access numbers, Talkers go in on one number and listners on another that has the m option set

As simple as that
