- Are the speakers and microphone working and adjusted for best quality?
Users should run the Audio Setup Wizard to calibrate their microphone for best performance.
- Are there any firewalls or access issues that must be resolved?
If you believe there is a firewall or security issue, contact the Academic Technology help desk.
- Plug in your USB headset or other external audio devices before loading the Adobe Connect meeting room.
- If participant’s audio is not working, verify that the microphone and speakers are plugged in properly. Plugging things into the wrong outlets is a common technical problem.
- If the microphone and headset are plugged in correctly, try having the participants perform the Audio Setup Wizard again.
- If the problem persists, ask the participant to close the Adobe Connect meeting room and browser and try logging in again.
- Have the participant reset their Internet connection, or try a different web browser - make sure the browser you are using is supported.
- If the participant’s audio is working but with long delays, have him or her close all other open applications.
- If the volume is fading out during long statements, repeat ALL steps of the Audio Setup Wizard with one addition: In the Advance Settings area, un-check the Automatic Gain Control option.
- If all else fails, have the participant reboot the computer.
- If none of these solutions are working, contact the Teaching & Learning Support Desk.
