Webinar Audio Troubleshooting

Keep all electronic handheld devices, such as Blackberries or cell phones, away from microphones and speakers.

A USB headset is recommended. If you are hearing an echo, try the following:

  • If using speakers for sound, reduce your speaker volume to a low level and keep your microphone away from your speakers
  • If you think the echo is from an attendee, see who is speaking and ask them to lower their speaker volume or alternately you can mute that attendee’s sound
  • If joining via telephone, make sure the audio setting on your Control Panel is not set to mic & speakers
  • Check to see if your built-in laptop microphone is turned off. If not, turn it off– built-in mics can cause echoes
  • If your webcam mic is on, turn it off – webcam mics can also cause echoes
  • If using a microphone, move it closer to you and away from sound-generating devices (computer fans, speakers, etc.)
  • Do not move or touch the microphone, especially when speaking

If there are delays, words are dropped or you hear robotic sounds:

  • This is often due to poor network performance, lack of memory or high CPU usage
  • Close all applications, tabs, programs you are not using for the presentation

VoIP users:

  • Dial-up Internet connections are inherently slow and can cause problems
  • Broadband Internet connections are recommended
  • If problem persists, switch to telephone and dial in to the meeting. You must select “Telephone” in the Audio pane to do this.

Although the NSTP has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the materials and the seminar presentation, neither the author,the presenter nor the National Society of Tax Professionals assumes any responsibility for any individual's reliance on the written or oral information presented during the presentation. Each attendee should verify independently all statements made in the materials and during the seminar presentation before applying them to a particular fact pattern and should determine independently the tax and other consequences of using any particular device, technique or suggestion before recommending the same to a client or implementing the same on a client's or on his or her own behalf.
