Is it possible to mute just one person during conference call?

I use Skype at work to make everyday teleconference with my team. One of my team members sits in the same room as me, so I don't need to hear her from the speaker. The result is, that I can hear the person twice, with slight delay, speaking "live" in the room and in Skype.

To answer my own question, I believe there is no way to mute just one person. The same problem was already discussed on Skype support community.

If you are the leader of the conversation you can type the following command in the chat:

/setrole [skypename] LISTENER

That will make them able to listen, but not talk.

If you then want them normal again you can type:

/setrole [skypename] USER

You can see all commands by typing /w or a slash and any other letter.

Will that allow other people in the conference to listen to the second person? – Canadian Luke Oct 23 '12 at 17:46
@Luke - Of course not, they would only be able to listen, which is clearly not what the author wanted. – Ramhound Oct 23 '12 at 19:40
