Audio Tips for Video Conference Software
If the person you are chatting with is hearing irritating or loud noises or a lot of feedback it may be that the microphone on your PC or the built-in micropone on your Laptop may be positioned incorrectly. To solve this problem, plug an external microphone into the microphone port on the computer.
If the audio volume is too low for the person you are chatting with then you may be able to turn up your microphone volume in a couple of ways. First try number 1, then try number 2.
XP: Double click the speaker icon in the taskbar (or click on Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices. Under the volume tab click on Advanced) then click on Options -> Properties -> Recording -> OK. There you can raise the microhphone volume level.
Vista: Click on Start -> Control Panel ->
Sound -> Recording. There you can adjust the
volume level for the microhpone.
XP: Follow the steps in number 1 and then if there is an Advanced button under the microhpone volume then click on it and check Microphone boost, then click close. Note: This may make your mic volume too loud so you may have to then lower the volume control for the microphone.
Vista: Follow the steps in number 1 then click on Custom and select Microphone – 20dB Boost and click Ok. Note: This may make your mic volume too loud so you may have to then lower the volume control for the microphone.
