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.
