I've tried to use the Blender chat room and I can see posts there but I can't find any way to start to talk. I clicked everything imaginable and I could not get in. Help? Thanks.

You need 20 rep to talk in chat. You can see your current site privileges here. Also, this should have been on a banner when you entered the chatroom.

Why do I need 20 rep to talk in chat?

Your reputation on chat is the same as your reputation on the parent site.

You can always enter chat rooms and listen with no rep at all.

We can't allow anonymous participation on chat, so we require a small bit of parent site reputation to ensure that chat is reserved for active, engaged members of the community.

In addition to the 20 reps, I think something in a database somewhere might get updated only overnight. Yesterday I had over 20 reps but could only read the chat but not talk - but when I tried again today, I got in and could talk with no problem.
