Testing Audio

Please note: your professor may have mics muted during the meeting.

You can test your video before or during a meeting to ensure it is working correctly. Follow these steps to test your video:

Computer Audio (for Windows/Mac):

  • Test your computer speakers and mic by clicking on the ^ icon next to the microphone at the bottom of the meeting screen.
    • A dialog box appears with options to test your equipment or select another from the drop-down menu.
    • Click Test Speaker/Test Mic to see the output/input volume levels. This will show you that others can hear you.
