Mic Not Working?

If you don’t see the music bar appear, then try these steps:

Step 1. Reload The Page: First step is to just reload the page and try again. In many cases that solves the issue.

Step 2. Check If The Mic Is Connected: If reloading the page did not fix the issue and you are using an external microphone, then check if your microphone is connected. In addition, you should check that your microphone is connected to the correct socket.

This socket is normally pink and normally has a microphone icon above it.

If the mic has a USB connector, then make sure the USB cable is properly connected to the USB socket.

Step 3. Check Mute: Some microphones have a mute button on the device itself. Check that your microphone is not muted. In fact, sometimes the ute button or slider is on the mic’s cable, so make sure you check for that.

Step 4. Check Volume: Sometimes the issue may be as simple as the volume is turned down too low. Ensure that you check that the volume on the microphone is not turned all the way down.

Why Use Online Mic Testing: How many times have you had microphone issues with Skype, a conference call or similar? You spend several minutes trying to figure out the issue to no avail. Why? Because most of these services in these apps for microphone testing are far from perfect! In fact, many of them are rather disappointing in terms of troubleshooting. It can be a sad nightmare. So, this is why online microphone testing is important. Moreover, when you test your mic online, you can ensure that any issues detected are not with the software that you are using with the mic.

Checking Your Mic With Software: The issue with checking your microphone with a software on your computer is that if the mic doesn’t work through the app, you won’t be able to tell if it is the software or the mic that’s not working.



Why Test Mic Online Through The Browser?

The benefit of using the browser for your mic test is the fact that this is a direct and easy way to test your mic. By using the browser, you can ensure that the issue is due to software on your computer or even the computer operating system itself.

In addition to that, using your browser to test is quick and easy. Its not a good idea to use software on your computer to test your mic because the software you use may have its own issues and may not work because of that.



Mic Works Online But Does Not Work On Computer

In addition, you can try to log a support ticket with the software vendor to see if they can assist you with finding and fixing the problem.
